This is a question from an absolute newbie. I am running Vista and I installed Sage 5.5 as an appliance with the Virtual Box. I cannot figure out how to load data files from Windows. I have followed all the instructions in the Sage Appliance wiki and it says my shared files should be here : The files will be in /media/sf_<volume name="">.

I have not idea how to find this. Also, what does <volume name=""> mean?

The volume name should be the name of the Windows folder that you shared. For instance if you share the folder C:\my\own\folder then the volume name would be folder and it will show up as /media/sf_folder.
