Description

When I upgraded my Kubuntu 7.04 system from VirtualBox 1.3.8 to 1.4.0, the Windows 2000 sp4 client developed a problem. Using vb 1.4.0, when files are copied from the vbox shared folder to the virtual C: drive, all of the files are converted to directories. Using vb 1.3.8 the file copies work fine. I am using a Windows script (although it also happens using the Windows Explorer.) to copy several files from the shared folder to the C drive to be used by Quicken. The system I am running this on is a HP Athlon 64x2 5200+, 2gb ram, Nvidia video card, sata hard disk. I have also had this happen on a Dell 2.8ghz, 1gb ram, Kubuntu 7.04, ata 100 hd.

Have you updated to the 1.4.0 Guest Additions?

I was running into this same issue after upgrading virtualbox. Upgrading the guest additions as michael suggested fixed the issue.
