I am running a Ubuntu VM on my MacOS X (host) using VMWare Fusion. I have found a lot of information about sharing the host partition with the guest VM but not much on sharing the guest folder/partition with host. I read about using smb or nfs to do that. Isn't there an easier and faster way to do this?
Best to map a folder of the host to be visible inside the VM (for read/write). The data will always be available in the host, independently of the having the VM running. Check this link
