I have a Windows host and an Ubuntu guest. I have drag-and-drop and copy-and-paste enabled both ways. When I try to drag or copy a folder over I get the folder but none of the contents. Tried with other folders to different locations. Same result. Kind of a noob when it comes to Linux and VirtualBox but after a while of looking I couldn't find anything. Guest Additions is installed.

This may help.

Also do you have quest additions installed.

Not trying to share, just copy/drag over. – Helliax Jun 26 '13 at 2:16
It may be best to ask at the official forums, they have more info on it. – user88311 Jun 26 '13 at 13:52
