Make sure you have File Sharing turned on while the MacOS VM is running. You should be able to choose which directories and what protocol you want to use.
As has been mentioned before there are propietary reasons, plus Mac OS X partition format is different from those used on windows and windows cannot directly access it. Legal intermediaries like VMWare will enforce the walled garden.
