Not sure where my files are saving to

Hello, I am still very new to using SAS. I have access to SAS through Oracle VM Virtual Box. I have been trying to save and open files from my computer. The only file path that shows up on my 'Server Files and Folders' is a location called My Folders. A second subfolder is below that called 'sasuser.v94'. Can someone tell me how to add my own locations.

Make sure you select Auto-mount and Make Permanent in the Add Share dialog box.

You can follow the instructions in the FAQ, but it seems the best method is to move your files to the My Folders location that you set up in the installation process. 

 

The video above details the steps. 

 

You can also add additional shared folders, similar to how you set up the My Folders location.

Re: Not sure where my files are saving to

I have tried to add a shared folder but it seems like it still isn't showing up in SAS. In my Oracle VM VirtualBox, I selected Devices_Shared Folders_Shared Folder Settings, and added the file path where I wanted the files to save. Upon starting up SAS University Editon, in the information center, I have a error message that reads 'A shared folder named "myfolders" was not found on the virtual machine. See the FAQ for details.'

More than likely you missed a step somewhere. 

 

Please post an image of:

1) Your myfolders folder under SAS-University-Edition folder

2) Your shared drive setup

3) The Folder pane on SAS UE

Thank you so much for the help. Auto-mount seemed to fix my problem. Thanks again!
