Hello, I work on both Windows 10 and Linux. I need to share a folder between Windows 10 and our VirtualBox (CentOS). What's the best way to do that? Any ideas?

You might consider a cloud-based file sharing service such as OneDrive or Dropbox. Binfer might be an option as well. It’s neat how it works.

    Sharing a folder between guest and host OS is possible, first by creating folder in virtual machine (CentOS). When adding a shared folder on a running vm, Now auto mount will mount the folder immediately. To do that open My Computer/ This PC/ My PC (whatever it is on your windows 10 desktop). Go to map network drive from the top menu and select the drive letter. For folder type as \\virtualmachinename\foldersharename, Now check Reconnect on Logon and click Finish.
