Setup shared folder

In Virtual Machine Settings windows, add shared folder.

As you can see in the above screenshot, I have added a share named python-bio.

Mount the share

Run the following command to mount it:

In my case, I am mounting share python-bio to folder /home/tangf/mounts/python-bio/.


You can then change directory to the mount folder and list the files in it using command ‘ls -alt’
