How to map a Windows host driver to Ubuntu guest OS?

Jump to solution

Host OS: Windows 10

Guest OS: Ubuntu 18.04

VM: VMware workstation 15 Pro.

What I want to do is to map a Windows host drive (or folder) to Ubuntu guest OS, so that this drive can be seen in Ubuntu. How to do that? Thanks a lot!

Hi,

Pretty easy.

Select Ubuntu VM->RightClick->Settings->Options>SharedFolder->Always Enabled->Select your required Windows Drive->Ok Done.

On Ubuntu open terminal-

cd /mnt/hgfs

ls -l

Easiest way is to use standard SAMBA file sharing.
