Description (last modified by )
users trying to access their shared folders (setup through virtualbox manager gui) recieve this error:
You do not have the permissions necessary to view the contents of "sf_virtualbox_test_share".
There is a security group "vboxsf" that has create and edit permissions but the default user account is not made a member of the security group. add your account to the security group and the folder is accessible.
it would seem reasonable to have the shared folder wizard make the default user a member of this security group.
