Exchanging Files with the FreeDOS machine

VirtualBox has no guest additions for DOS. That means “shared folders” are not available for any DOS guests. So how do we exchange files between your host i.e. your Operating System on your PC and the FreeDOS guest?

In theory you could use virtual floppies or burn virtual CDs.

But these solutions are much easier:

  1. Mount the image in the host or
  2. FTP to the guest
