I had a similar issue this morning.  I updated Virtual Box and then SAS was not seeing the "myfolders" folder.  I shut everything down and restarted it.  Once I did this, when I tried to log in to SAS, there was a message in a popup window that SAS needed to update and I could update now or continue into SAS and just get a reminder.  I tried continue, but my folder was still not visible.  So I next tried downloading the update.  It did not appear to continue to an update when I tried that option, so I once again shut everything down and tried again.  This time instead of a popup window about the update, under notifications I had a button I could click on.  I clicked on it, it performed its magic and went on in to SAS and there was my files and everything was back to normal!   For disclosure purposes, I am on a Mac.  Hope this helps...

@kaushik_pawar: The screenshots didn't make it! You have to use the Photos icon to attach them.

Your screenshot cutoff the file name, but I would think that your proc import should have started with something like:

proc import datafile='/folders/myfolders/whateverthefilenameis'

Re: SAS cannot read or find myfolders

proc import datafile =
'/home/kaushik/Documents/Kaushik/Work/SASUniversityEdition/myfolders/cars_excel.csv'

This is what it looks like. but i dont think there is anything wrong with
the datafile statement since i get an error on the welcome page of sas
studio saying that folder named 'sharedfolder' was not found.

That is most definitely the incorrect path. 

 

It's usually like:

 

/folders/myfolders/cars_excel.csv

 

or 

 

/folders/myshortcuts/myfolders/cars_excel.csv

 

Find the file in your Servers Files and Folders, right click it, select properties and get the path from there. 

 

The path you've shown is more likely in SAS Academics on Demand, but not SAS University.

And the error should be 'myfolders', not 'sharedfolders' which is why it's important to post the exact screenshot and error messages.

Hi @kaushik_pawar,

 

Did you check the suggestions listed in this FAQ topic?

Why am I seeing a "A shared folder named myfolders was not found on the virtual machine" message in ...
