Permission denied to access shared folders on Windows when folder contains broken symbolic link

Reported by: Ankhterus Owned by:
Priority: minor Component: shared folders
Version: VirtualBox 3.1.2 Keywords: permission denied symbolic link
Cc: Guest type: Windows
Host type: Linux

Description

Host: Ubuntu 9.10 AMD64 Guest: Windows XP 32bits

For some reason, Windows prevented me to access a shared folder by telling me I need administraor privileges to access it (while I have them). I noticed that I have some broken symbolic links on the ext4 filesystem of that folder. After removing them, access to the folder was granted by Windows guest os.

Also detected in recent 4.0.8 version (also on ext4 FS).

BTW: It was working quite fine on BTRFS with VBOX 4.0.6.
