Hi Guys,

I'm using Virtual Box to do some Windoze stuff (ugh!)

Are there any easy ways to move files back and forth between my Virtual Box desktop and my Mac desktop? Right now I'm sending myself emails with attachments there's got to be a better way!

Thanks,

Bert

Never used Virtual Box, but with Parallels you can designate shared folders. I'd be surprised if VB doesn't have same. But then, sometimes you don't get what you don't pay for.

In the virtual box configuration for a particular virtual machine, you can specify which local folders will be shared, and what their remote name will appear as:



When the virtual Microsoft Windows machine is running, you can map the drive. If you are comfortable specifying the name directly, you can do it from the command line. Or you can choose the "browse" option in the map network drives command to browse to the virtual box shared drives:

Thanks Andrew, Bear,

Andrew, you've sent me down a promising path, I'm grappling with a different version of windoze... sigh
 
I wish to win the lottery. I wish for a lovely piece of pie. And I wish for a tiny ad:
