How do I share files between Ubuntu 12.04 and virtual box? I would like to use VB as a test platform for downloads etc.

You have to install what is called Virtualbox Guest Additions.

After you finish installing that, you will be able to share files between the two systems using the Virtualbox "shared folders" setting.
