I have installed Debian 11 in a VirtualBox virtual machine.

I have then installed "Guest Additions" in Debian and the installation is correct, as far as I can verify.

I have now created a shared folder on the host machine (Windows 10) and enabled the full access and automount options.

However, I cannot access the contents of the shared folder from the Debian virtual machine.

Looking at various tutorials on the internet I have followed these steps:

mkdir /home//myuser/SHARED_FOLDER/

sudo usermod -a -G vboxsf myuser

sudo chown -R myuser:users /media/sf_D_DRIVE/

sudo mount -t vboxsf wd SHARED_FOLDER/
Shows:
/sbin/mount.vboxsf: mounting failed with the error: Invalid argument

sudo mount -t vboxsf /media/sf_D_DRIVE/ /home/myuser/SHARED_FOLDER/
Shows:
/sbin/mount.vboxsf: mounting failed with the error: Invalid argument


I would appreciate if you give me some help on what I need to configure or what is wrong.
