Can not write to VBox shared folders until someone logs in

Hi All,

Would you please fix this for me?

I have Cobian Backup ( set to backup certain files on my Guest in the middle of the night to my host's VBox shared drive (\VBOXSVR\Drivers-Windows\pro-backup). Before I do my backups on the Host, I shut the Guest down. After the backups are complete, I restart the Guest. So, the Guest gets reboot once a day.

Problem: Cobian can not see the drive, unless someone logs in (any account will do). This has shown up mightily during the holidays as no one is using the Guest.

Cobian error:

12/25/2009 10:20:17 PM The destination directory "\VBOXSVR\Drivers-Windows\pro-backup\pro60 2009-12-25 22;20;10" doesn't exist. Trying to create it

ERR 12/25/2009 10:20:17 PM Cannot create the destination directory "\VBOXSVR\Drivers-Windows\pro-backup\pro60 2009-12-25 22;20;10"

Many thanks, -T
