How to get sufficient rights on shared folders

Postby hannibalstgt » 30. Jul 2019, 19:02

Hello
I have installed Virtual Box Version 6.0.10 r 132072 on my Windows 10 64 Bit System (V 1903).
Then I installed Ubuntu MATE 10.04 and I installed the GuestAdditions.

Ubuntu MATE comes up and runs pretty well.
But then I tried to add a shared folder. It appears on the desktop, but I cannot get access to the folder and its content.

The system says I do not have the correct rights to acces the Folder/Files.

In the devices section I used in the path "E:\Videos\Aufnahmen Bearbeitet\DVRStudio" the folder name "DVRStudio"
option "only read" and "automatic mount" and mount point " ~/home".

In Ubuntu MATE under devices there shows up a device named sf_DVRStudio
and a message appears
"foldercontent could not be presented - you do not have the requierd access rights to show the content of sf_DVRStudio."

I have tried to set the share option under Windows 10 - but this did not help.

How can I get the required access rights to access the folder and the files in it"

Many thanks for a hint.

Problem solved !

The VirtualBox Extension Pack 6.0.10 was not installed.
After Installation the access rights are granted.

That's ... interesting. Because the ExtPack has absolutely nothing to do with Shared Folders.
Do NOT send me Personal Messages (PMs) for troubleshooting, they are simply deleted.
Do NOT reply with the "QUOTE" button, please use the "POST REPLY", at the bottom of the form.
If you obfuscate any information requested, I will obfuscate my response. These are virtual UUIDs, not real ones.
