Failure when non-existing uppercase and underscore directory

Reported by: garfield Owned by:
Priority: minor Component: shared folders
Version: VirtualBox 4.0.4 Keywords:
Cc: Guest type: Windows
Host type: Linux


  1. Ubuntu 10.10 Host
  2. Windows XP Guest
  3. VirtualBox-Guest-Tools 4.0.4
  4. Shared Folder called "Share" pointing to ~/Share
  1. Do this:
    cd ~/Share
    rm -rf /tmp/HELLO_WORLD #yes, the directory must not exist
  1. Try to access \VBOXSVR\Share:

"Auf \VBOXSVR\Share kann nicht zugegriffen werden. Sie haben eventuell keine Berechtigung, diese Netzwerkressource zu verwenden. Wenden Sie sich an den Administrator des Servers, um herauszufinden, ob Sie über Berechtigungen verfügen.

Falscher Parameter."

Unfortunately my Windows is german and i didn't find an exact translation in google... "Unable to access \vboxscr\share. You might have unsufficent privileges to use this ressource. Consult your admin blah blah

Wrong parameter."

If you try the same with "hello_world" or "HELLO" or "HELLO_WORLd", there will be no error.
