Welcome to LinuxQuestions.

I assume that you are using Windows as the host and linux as the guest on the same computer. By installing guest additions if not already accomplished you can setup shared folders. Basically like windows shares but without needing a network.

https://www.virtualbox.org/manual/ch...#sharedfolders

Otherwise, you can use any network file transfer protocol like FTP, SCP, SFTP or windows network file sharing i.e. SMB/CIFS. The service needs to be running on Redhat VM and the firewall if running configured to allow traffic for that service.

in Vbox it has in the settings a place to pick a share folder where you can put things to share between the two host / client. if you hard mount a windows volume then you can use that mount point or its subdirectories for a share folder.

that is Linux to windows, so I do suppose that because windows cannot see a Linux format. but just the same. I'd go into the settings for that Linux client and set up a share folder because it is Vbox it is the medium between the two so you should not have an issue using share folders in Vbox.

In other words don't lie!!

Windows can see any file format with the apprpriate driver! just like Linux can.

that was not lying. it was obviously thinking in error due to lack of new information. if what you say is a truth. get your facts straight before strongly insinuating me of a lie.

You were implying that Windows was incapable of reading them!

And I was paraphrasing your own signature!

I am not as stupid as you may try to play me for and I am not going to carry on this conversation on it either by explaining to you what your "rephrasing" of a quote I have in my signature to me is actually you actually turning it into an insinuation towards me.

You were, in your own words, stating something that is not true.

this is simple yes no logic it is a truth or a lie. if it is a lie then why? is the person misinformed therefor as a result of it now issuing errors on his or her part as as result of it, or is the he or she actually knowingly lying to misdirect the other?

I was acting on faulty information therefor thinking in error as a result of it. pretty simple really.

BW-userx and dave@burn-it.co.uk please remember the following points from LQ Rules:
  1. Personal attacks on others will not be tolerated.
  2. Do not post if you do not have anything constructive to say in the post.
  3. When posting in an existing thread, ensure that what you're posting is on-topic and relevant to the thread. If the content of your post will interfere with the current discussion, you should start a new thread.
  4. Challenge others' points of view and opinions, but do so respectfully and thoughtfully ... without insult and personal attack. Differing opinions is one of the things that make this site great.
The question may be poorly formed, if so and if the OP is not participating in adding more information, then avoid going any further on the topic until the OP adds some more thoughts or info. Avoid personal attacks above all.
