Ahhh ... All you need is to install virtualbox-guestadditions in your
windows guest.

To do that, you must have the file :


which gets pulled when you check

[x] GUESTADDITIONS  Build with Guest Additions

in make config when building the virtualbox-ose port.

Attach the iso to your windows guest and install it.

After that, whatever folder you share from the host, will be accessible by
your windows guest.
