What you need is shared folders + guests addon.
Enable a Shared Folder for a Virtual Machine You can enable folder sharing for a specific virtual machine. To set up a folder for sharing
between virtual machines, you must configure each virtual machine to
use the same directory on the host system or network share.
Prerequisites ■ Verify that the virtual machines use a guest operating
system that supports shared folders. See Guest Operating Systems that
Support Shared Folders. ■ Verify that the latest version of VMware
Tools is installed in the guest operating system. ■ Verify that
permission settings on the host system allow access to files in the
shared folders. For example, if you are running Workstation as a user
named User, the virtual machine can read and write files in the shared
folder only if User has permission to read and write them. Procedure 1
Select the virtual machine and select VM > Settings. 2 On the Options
tab, select Shared Folders. 3 Select a folder sharing option. Option
Description Always enabled
Keep folder sharing enabled, even when the virtual machine is shut
down, suspended, or powered off.
Enabled until next power off or suspend
Enable folder sharing temporarily, until you power off, suspend, or
shut down the virtual machine. If you restart the virtual machine,
shared folders remain enabled. This setting is available only when the
virtual machine is powered on.
4 (Optional) To map a drive to the Shared Folders directory, select
Map as a network drive in Windows guests. This directory contains all
of the shared folders that you enable. Workstation selects the drive
letter. 5 Click Add to add a shared folder. On Windows hosts, the Add
Shared Folder wizard starts. On Linux hosts, the Shared Folder
Properties dialog box opens. 6 Type the path on the host system to the
directory to share. If you specify a directory on a network share,
such as D:\share, Workstation always attempts to use that path. If the
directory is later connected to the host on a different drive letter,
Workstation cannot locate the shared folder. 7 Specify the name of the
shared folder as it should appear inside the virtual machine.
Characters that the guest operating system considers illegal in a
share name appear differently when viewed inside the guest. For
example, if you use an asterisk in a share name, you see %002A instead
of * in the share name on the guest. Illegal characters are converted
to their ASCII hexadecimal value. 8 Select shared folder attributes.
Option Description Enable this share
Enable the shared folder. Deselect this option to disable a shared
folder without deleting it from the virtual machine configuration.
Make the shared folder read-only. When this property is selected, the
virtual machine can view and copy files from the shared folder, but it
cannot add, change, or remove files. Access to files in the shared
folder is also governed by permission settings on the host computer.
9 Click Finish to add the shared folder. The shared folder appears in
the Folders list. The check box next to folder name indicates that the
folder is being shared. You can deselect this check box to disable
sharing for the folder. 10 Click OK to save your changes.
