Sharing the directory between Host and Guest Operating System in VMWork Station

August 22, 2010

The files between Host and Guest Operating System can be shared by using Add Shared Folder Wizard.

This setup worked for me for Host as Winodws XP & Vista and Guest as linux

1. Create a directory on Host . ( I created directory called shared on Host===C:\shared>)

2. Edit the VM Machine setting and go to options click for add shared folders and share the Host shared folder with Guest.

3. This shared folder appears in /mnt/hgfs on Guest.
