Have Devuan-3.0 guest installed on Linux 6.1.26 host.

Everything seems work except for "shares".

Setup on host in settings / shared folders as usual.

Shared folders through Virtualbox require Guest Additions in the VM.

Start the VM from full normal shutdown, not save-state. Run until you see the problem happen, then shut down the VM from within the VM's OS if possible. If not possible, close the Virtualbox window for the VM with the Power Off option set.

Right-click the VM in the main Virtualbox window's VM list, choose Show Log. Save the far left tab's log, zip it, and post the zip file, using the forum's Upload Attachment tab.

I am also running Devuan 3 guest (several, actually) and have no problems with shared folders.
I am running 6.1.26 on host and all VMs.

I am posting this just for comparison purposes. Note that my host is also Devuan 3.
