libname error

[ Edited ]
 libname my_data 'C:/practice/myfolders';
 run;
 which gives an error massage, but when i checked the share folder the assigned lib folder is there  
 here is the massage 
 libname my_data 'C:/practice/myfolders';
NOTE: Library MY_DATA does not exist.
run;

Re: libname error

"myfolders" lets me guess you are using SAS University Edition. Follow the instructions for setting up the shared location when installing the VM image and how to specify the path in the Linux VM that runs SAS UE.

Re: libname error

Assuming you are on SAS UE and have set up the shared folders properly the path should be:

libname my_data '/folders/myfolders';

If not please refer to this post, specifically Cynthia Zender's answer.
