Ticket #9066 (new defect)
Shared folders lose guest access to folder contents when folders renamed
|Reported by:||monsieurrigsby||Owned by:|
On a Win7 x64 host and Ubuntu 11.04 x64 guest, whenever I rename a shared folder directory, the guest OS loses references to the files therein. The files are still there (and correct on the host OS) but somehow inaccessible on the guest: ls shows the filename, but gives "no such file or directory" errors for each file therein (so it would appear that it's there in the filesystem tables, but the pointer to the actual location has got broken somehow). This therefore definitely appears to be a vboxsf error.
The file access can be "restored" by remounting the folder, or by renaming the folder back to its original name. The error always occurs, however the renaming is done (console or file manager). It also occurs if the folder is renamed on the host.
This is a pretty serious error, especially because many apps put things in hidden folders and then rename these (e.g. backup utilities such as Unison).
