how to copy paste files between host and guest?

Postby chrone » 14. Apr 2009, 17:22

dear all,

how to copy paste files between host and guest? i've already installed the guest additions, but still couldn't copy paste between host and guest os. the copy paste text between host and guest works just fine though.

i'm using windows 7 beta 1 x64 for the host os, and ubuntu 8.04.2 x86 for the guest os. thanks in advance. :)

Copy paste files is not supported, vbox share can be used instead.
