With VirtualBox you can share a directory on the host machine with the guest machine. Can you share a directory on the guest machine with the host machine? In my setup the host is Windows 7 and the guest is Ubuntu. Can I have a directory on the Ubuntu file system accesible from Windows?

Your VM is a computer in its own right, if you have networking configured correctly you can share a folder through Samba on the Ubuntu box and Windows can then access it via \\192.168.1.x\SharedFolder.
