I have installed latest Docker Toolbox 1.11.2 on Windows 10. When I run $ docker-machine create -d virtualbox default - virtualbox creates image, everything is fine. Shared folders are configured by default:

enter image description here

When I connect to image using $ docker-machine ssh - shared folder is not mounted. And even if I try to mount it manually, I get the following error:

$ sudo mkdir -p /c/Users && sudo mount -t vboxsf -o defaults,uid=`id -u docker`,gid=`id -g docker` c/Users /c/Users
mount.vboxsf: mounting failed with the error: Invalid argument
mount: mounting c/Users on /c/Users failed: Protocol error
  • Usually, starting the docker Quickstart Terminal or Kitematic creates the default VM automatically. I'm not sure what you might miss by doing it manually. – CAB Dec 13 '17 at 15:16

You need to install Virtual Guest Additions on your virtual machine, by selecting Insert Guest Additions CD Image from the Devices menu.
