A bit more description about the shared folders would be useful here. For example, describe that users need to create the folder (shared_folder_name) in their VM first and where the mount_vboxfs command should be run (host or VM). Thanks!

Can you enclose the shared_folder_name in <replaceable> tags?

  • Elaborate the documentation a bit.
  • Use <replaceable> tag.
