Host os: Win10 Guest os: ubuntu

in the vbox settings the checkbox "automount" is checked. Unfortunately after each restart i have to mount my shared folder manually with "sudo mount -t vboxsf Projekte /media/sf_Projekte".

someone know why the vbox-automount function doesn't works for me?

Thank you in advance

I have the exact same host and guest systems and experience no issue with shared folder mounting when starting the guest OS.

  • Without knowing the OP's Windows build number, VirtualBox version and Ubuntu version it's impossible for your answer to suggest it should just work.
