VBoxManage provides some additional configuration possibilities for VirtualBox, for instance activating of symlinks in shared folders (is still not working for me...):

C:\Windows\system32>VBoxManage setextradata "VM_NAME" VBoxInternal2/SharedFoldersEnableSymlinksCreate/SHARED_FOLDER_NAME 1

How can I see the current configuration? E.g. if SharedFoldersEnableSymlinksCreate is set to 1 or not.



"VBoxManage provides some additional configuration possibilities for VirtualBox" -- that's wrong.

VirtualBox Manual -> Chapter 8. VBoxManage -> Introduction: "VBoxManage is the command-line interface to VirtualBox."
