Share HD with Virtual Box

I have a Sun Virtual PC running XP. My PC has Windows 7.

I set drive E (Physical in my BOX) to be shared. Under sharing permissions I have All with full control

It shows up ok in the Virtual XP.  But when I try to connect it saya it cannot find it?

Is it possible to do it?

What do you mean saya? When you have a virtual system you must think about it as a seperate physical system the OS still has limitations.

Hello robrodp,

Sun Virtual PC -> VirtualBox ?

To see the share drives or folders, you need to go in the "My Network place" : http://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/User_FAQ

Regards.

Well, when I go to my network place all I see is the virtual pc's shared documents. But I can't see the host computer's files
