Virtualbox – Sharing Folders with the correct permissions

Stuff which I tried but did not work

Adding mount to fstab

The issue here is that vboxsf is not yet loaded when /etc/fstab is loaded.
I added vboxsf to /etc/modules but still had no luck.

Adding mount to rc.local

cronjob

Troubleshooting

1. Appending the line vboxsf to /etc/modules did not work for me
