When installing new Linux you may have your favourite mounts or in case of virtualbox shared folders. Below I explain how can you easily mount and even automount them. Below I explain how to mount using virtualbox.
The result you should see is something like this:
Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on rootfs 37130816 5164336 30080324 15% / udev 10240 0 10240 0% /dev tmpfs 207452 628 206824 1% /run /dev/disk/by-uuid/7c4672f3-17b1-42c2-9b43-e42ed5a2b86c 37130816 5164336 30080324 15% / tmpfs 5120 0 5120 0% /run/lock tmpfs 743800 464 743336 1% /run/shm none 1855867900 1399452908 456414992 76% /media/sf_shared /dev/sr0 58094 58094 0 100% /media/cdrom0
See /media/sf_shared mount. On Virtualbox shared folder configuration this is my D:\shared folder. At my home folder I create directory shared. Now its absolute directory is /home/simon/shared, if your username is simon:). Now just type:
$ sudo mount -t vboxsf shared /home/simon/shared
$ ls -l /home/simon/shared
And you should see the list of files at your host computer. To be clear, lets do another example. For instance you create directory /home/simon/sallallaa. Then you should mount as:
$ sudo mount -t vboxsf shared /home/simon/sallallaa
If you like to automount just add your mount command to the /etc/rc.local file. Just before exit line.
