I have a Windows 7 installed on my laptop. I installed VirtualBox 4.1.4 with Ubuntu 11.10.

Now I want to be able to copy files from Windows to Ubuntu and vice versa.

What is the easiest method to accomplish this ?

Best Answer

Sharing files from Windows with Ubuntu as a guest OS can be done via "Shared Folders" that can be mounted or auto-mounted in the guest OS.

Alternatively, we can also setup a network share via Samba.
