Mount a shared drive in virtualbox

This is mainly because I keep forgetting the commands for this…

sharename="whatever.you.want.to.call.it"; 
sudo mkdir /mnt/$sharename
sudo chmod 777 /mnt/$sharename
sudo mount -t vboxsf -o uid=1000,gid=1000 $sharename /mnt/$sharename
ln -s /mnt/$sharename $HOME/Desktop/$sharename

 

Then add this line to your /etc/rc.local file so that it auto-mounts when you start up your vm.
