Since I tried multiple things I found in different forums I have already rebooted several times after I added myself to vboxsf.

Again, what's the output of "id". If it doesn't show that you're a part of the 'vboxsf' group, you're not doing it right. If I remember correctly, the proper command is:

    usermod -a -G vboxsf <YourUsername>
Reboot and verify membership to the 'vboxsf' with:

    id

The output of "id" stays the same.

Then something is wrong with your setup.

Looks like there was an error in the group id. Now "id" says I'm in vboxsf. But there's still no difference regarding the shared folders.

Now those (empty, pw protected, auto mounted) folders are in group root...

Like?

What folders? Where are they? What do they look like? Permissions? (in Unix-like style)

1. For some reason vboxsf had an id that was already in use.

2. The folders created by VirtualBox as auto mounting points for the shared folders. They are in my home directory and have the following permissions
Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
drwxr-x--- 2 root     root     4096 Mai 27 10:46 sf_first
drwxr-x--- 2 root     root     4096 Mai 27 10:46 sf_second

Deleting and rebooting doesnt change them. And, like I said before, mounting them manually doesn't work either.
