Is it possible to copy files from Oracle VM desktop to the other local windows?

  • Can Oracle VM access the local network (or even a fake host-only network), if so just setup a network share and use that. Or, can you configure the VM to mount folders from the host and then use them directly. (Note: I've not used Oracle VM - but you can do both these things in VirtualBox and other VM's so I'd be surprised if you can't here) – DMA57361 Sep 7 '10 at 10:21

Yes it is. You have to go to Settings-->Advanced and set "Drag'nDrop" to Bidirectional. You may also have to install the VM extensions before doing so(Devices-->Install guest additions mounts a cd and then you may have to go run setup if it does not autorun).

Only way i am able to do it personally is to

Write the files in a CD/DVD disk from the Oracle VM then copy pasting the files to your Desktop from the CD/DVD

Alternatively you can also transfer the files to your desktop via a Pen-drive

According to me the best way to share would be to Share a Folder which then can be shared by the host and guest. But I am not able to share my folder hence cant provide you the steps. Perhaps this section could help you http://www.virtualbox.org/manual/ch03.html#id2654538

    yes, shared folders would be the best way to do this. You need to have Guest Additions installed in the guest for this to work though. – tombull89 Dec 28 '10 at 12:29
