"myfolders" shared folder was unable to be found (physical machine is linux)

[ Edited ]

Hi, I've searched through all previous threads on the same issue and nothing seemed to work. My physical machine in Linux Ubuntu 16.04 and I'm running Oracle Virtualbox

 

I get this error message after updating is done when I enter localhost:10080:

 A shared folder named "myfolders" was not found on the virtual machine. See the FAQ for details.

 

The "myfolders" directory was stored in the home directory with the path:

~/(user)/Downloads/SASUniversityEdition/myfolders

 I've tried sharing both the "myfolders" directory and the "SASUniversityEdition" parent directory. I'm able to set it up it in the settings (i.e. I can hit "OK"), but when I load the VM, I still get the error.

 

I tried creating a new root directory with the path:

/SASUniversityEdition/myfolders

But gave the parent directory full read and write permissions for all users (sudo chmod 666 SASUniversityEdition). This didn't work either.

 

Any suggestions?
