    Default View Windows XP Hard-Disk Paritions and its contents from virtualbox

    hey all,
    i've found some post already in this forum but its not that related
    because am using VirtualBox.

    I have two paritions on my pc C:\ & D:\
    their type is NTFS.

    Using xp as HOST
    Using Ubuntu 9.10 as GUEST -> Via VirtualBOX

    purpose : view C:\ & D:\ from Ubutnu.








    thanks.

    Turn on virtual box folder sharing go to youtube.com and search for video tutorial. It explains how to do the same.

    I already googled and made the sharing folder's option


    sudo mount -t vboxsf XP /media/windows-share


    but this shares a specific folder which is XP
    and each time i wanna share folder/files among two os(after 1st boot of Ubutnu)
    i need to write

    sudo mount -t vboxsf XP /media/windows-share
    in shell prompt i could add this to init but no need.

    the negative property of this way that it only shares 1 folder
    am not aware if it could share whole Drive or whole parition like c:\ or d:\ and not only a specific folder.

    thanks.
