Today I will show you how to access your Virtualbox shared folders in Linux. In Windows you would just mount a network drive but in Linux it takes a bit more work (but not much).
First thing to do is to make a mount point for the shared folder so open up a terminal and type:
sudo mkdir /media/share
Change share to any name you choose. Now we need to mount the Virtualbox shared folder so type:
sudo mount -t vboxsf sdc /media/share
changing sdc to the name of your Virtualbox shared folder. To make the mount permanent enter the above mount command (leave out the sudo) into the /etc/rc.local file.
