How to get sufficient rights on shared folders

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.

Wolfgang

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.
