Need help with sharing files between Windows Seven and virtual XP


Recommended Posts

Hi, guys! How you doing? I'm using Oracle VM VirtualBox (former Sun xVM VirtualBox) and I'd like to share files from my computer with Windows Seven Enterprise X64 to a virtualized XP installation. I've installed VM Guest Additions, but I don't how to set up a shared folder.

Maybe this link could help you:


Although he's using Ubuntu as his host OS but he's using XP as guest OS. It should be the same with Windows 7.

Edit: I just tried it with Windows 7 x64 Ultimate as host OS and Windows XP Pro as guest OS. It's the same as the video. Should install guest additions first (which you already did) before mapping a network drive.

Here is how.


Start>run>type "net use X: \\vboxsvr\SharedFolderName"

X: is the Drive Letter you want to use, it will create a Network Drive :) displayed under ‘Computer’ where all your Drives are listed
