 +=== Shared Folders ===
 +
 +Shared folders allow easy movement of files between your operating system (host) and the CIDER virtual machine (guest). These instructions will help you set up a shared folder.
 +
 +First, it is important to have a folder on your host already created, as VirtualBox'​s interface does not support folder creation.
 +
 +Open the VirtualBox application,​ highlight the CIDER virtual machine, and open its settings (in the top-bar ''​Machine -> Settings''​ or by clicking the gear icon). In the list of tabs, select //Shared Folders//. Right-click //Machine Folders// and select //Add Shared Folder//.
 +
 +In the pop-up, click on the arrow next to //Folder Path// and select //​Other...//​. This should pop up a file navigator. Navigate to and select your folder on your host machine. Be sure to also check the //​Auto-Mount//​ option, and hit //OK//.
 +
 +Now it's time to start the CIDER virtual machine. Let it boot up, then open a terminal (''​Ctrl+Alt+T''​) and type in:
 +  sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install dkms
 +and wait for it to finish.
 +
 +Next, go into VirtualBox'​s topbar and select ''​Devices -> Insert Guest Additions CD Image...''​. A window may pop up asking to run the CD. ''​Close''​ or ''​Cancel''​ that window, and, back in the terminal, type:
 +  cd /​media/​cig/​VBOXADDITIONS_4.3.28_100309
 +and then
 +  sudo sh ./​VboxLinuxAdditions.run
 +
 +Wait for the command to complete, then poweroff and restart the virtual machine. You should now have a working connection between your computer and the CIDER virtual machine. The guest folder will be at ''/​media/​sf_<​your host folder name>''​.
 +
 +Optional: If you want the guest shared folder to appear on, for example, the desktop, open a terminal and run (replacing the brackets with your folder name):
 +  ln -s /​media/​sf_<​your host folder name> ~/Desktop
 +
