Mount shared folder on Virtualbox. Windows host, linux guest.

To mount / share a folder between host and guest OS first create a folder in windows which you want to share.

For example: C:\myshare

Then assign it from the virtualbox settings-->shared folders-->+ icon: set folder path, tick Auto-Mount

Then boot up your guest os. Create a folder where you want to point the host os folder, for example /~share/. Then launch terminal and type:

sudo mount -t vboxsf myshare ~/share/

Then you should see items inside that folder.
