Share File between Mac Os X and Ubuntu

You’ll need the latest version of VirtualBox with Guest Additions installed in Ubuntu.With the Virtual Machine powered off and selected in VirtualBox, go to:
Machine > Settings… > Shared FoldersFor “Folder Path”, click the icon to browse for the folder you want to share.For “Folder Name”, enter a name to describe the share.Click “OK” and start the virtual machine again. (not necessary)
Create a mount point which is basically an empty folder.Fire up the terminal and type:
sudo mount -t vboxsf folder_name path_to_mount_point
folder_name is the name you typed in earlier to describe the shareWohoo! You should be able to browse the shared folder now.Mental note: do not choose the same names for the folders (IDIOT!)
