Ticket #5701 (closed defect: duplicate)
Symbolic link on shared folder not visible as directory

In my shared folder on the host I created some symbolic links to other directories. In the guest, when browsing the shared folder, these symbolic links were visible and usable as directories. After upgrading to VirtualBox 3.1 the symbolic links are now visible as 1kB files. They can not be opened as a file, and can not be used as a directory.
