Accessing The Host Disc From The Scientific Linux Virtual Machine

Currently only the SL5 virtual machine is setup to access the host machine discs. This is enabled by:

  1. with the virtual machine off right click on the virtual machine in the VirtualBox listing and select the 'Settings' menu.

  2. from the settings menu select the 'shared folders' submenu.

  3. then add a shared folder, sharing the 'C:\Shared' folder and giving it the name 'Shared'

    add-share.png

Other shared folders with different names can of course be used, but the default SL5 virtual guest is setup to look for and used a shared folder called 'Shared'.
