Replacing a file (saving over a file) on \vboxsrv\shared\file.ext gives access denied

Description (last modified by Valery Ushakov)

Replacing a file or doing saving as, over an existing file on \vboxsrv\shared\file.ext gives access denied.

If I use Photoshop to save a file on the shared folder it gives an error of access denied.


  • Save with a non-existing filename (file_.jpg)
  • Rename old filename (file1.jpg -> file1_old.jpg)
  • Rename newer file for the older filename (file_.jpg -> file1.jpg)

This behaviour was not happening many versions before (dont know which version).

I have the same issue, using an older version of guest additions(2.0.4) is a temporary fix

I have te same issue too...

Host : ubuntu 9.04 Guest: windows 2003 Entreprise Edition VirtualBox : 2.2.4 r47978 gest addition : 2.2.4 r47978

I make VM sharing "transient" (and not readonly) with my personnal folder ubuntu : "/home/myUser". In the guest, \VBOXSVR\myUser is visible but access denied...

Have you a solution ?
