I'm running on Windows 7 and using Sun's VirtualBox, and I already shared my folders in the settings of my VirtualBox installation. The problem is I can't figure-out how I can access it. I also tried googling it, but I think I'm not doing it right.

What OS are you running the virtual machine with? Is Windows 7 the host or the guest OS? – Lara Dougan Dec 6 '09 at 2:10

Install the Guest Additions and setup a shared folder (if you haven't done this yet), then use the following command from a command prompt:

net use x: \\vboxsvr\shared

X: is the drive letter that will be assigned to the network drive

Replace shared with the folder name you provided when setting up the shared folder.

You should get this:

If you don't want to map the shared folder, you can always type \\vboxsvr\shared into the address bar of Windows Explorer or the Run box.

It worked like charm! Thanks man! I haven't installed Guest Additions that's why I can't access. – Pennf0lio Dec 6 '09 at 2:43
