    Ten minutes for 2 commands...
    - On host, Create a shared folder with name SHARE_NAME (the name you want) to a local path.
    - On guest, enter commands:
    sudo mkdir /media/SHARE_NAME/
    sudo mount -t vboxsf SHARE_NAME /media/SHARE_NAME/

  18. The only problem is that this shared folder exists under c:Users, which is already shared by VirtualBox, and it doesn't cover how to accomplish this with a directory that resides outside of c:Users, for example, c:tempdata. This is significant, because there are security restrictions limiting people to their home directory.
