Copy/Paste files from a mapped network drive fails!

Description (last modified by aeichner) (diff)

This happens with and without Networking Support. I created a shared folder named "s" in Virtual Box, mapped the drive in the Guest: net use s: \vboxsvr\s

S drive comes up in My Computer. I can browse, execute and copy files, but if I do CTRL + C on any file or folder in the mapped drive then try to paste it anywhere on the C:\ drive of the Guest I get this message box:

S:\ is not accessible. The request is not supported.

I get odd errors with shared folders now and then, sometimes the mapping is inaccessible/disappears from my computer. I think fixing this is a good start. I think there's a confusion in the clipboard manager as to what's intended for guest and what's for host.

Any delete operations on the mapped drive cause the same message box.
