Seems like this should be easy enough, but I have yet to find a simple solution.

I'm using VMWare Fusion to access my Bootcamp partition through a VM on my OSX side. I'm trying to access my OSX files inside of the Bootcamp partition, but I'm not able to see the OSX partition anymore.

Is it possible to read and/or write files in the OSX partition from within a Bootcamp VM? If so, how is this done?


According to this post on Ask Different, this can be achieved using a shared folder:

When I need to access files that are on the Mac OS X side from within Windows, I go the VM preferences and enable each folder I want to share (you can share multiple folders form different locations). All shared folders will then be shown on the Z:\ drive in Windows.
