I am trying to share files (about a 1GB of data) between my work computer and a VMWare guest OS on the same physical machine. The guest, as loaded from a snapshot, is by default in its own workgroup. The host is connected to the company domain network. I am afraid if I leave the workgroup/domain with either computer, I will screw something up. Both machines are running Windows 7 Enterprise.

How can I transfer the files to my VM?

Have you installed VMware tools?… Also, possible dup:…. I would take a look there for a solution as well. – prateek61 Oct 1 '13 at 10:21

define network interface as on the VM to NAT this way you can access and define the VM just like you have another station in the network ,side by side.
