Hello! I have a Windows 10 VM in which I would like to edit and parse files related to the Windows installation (for example editing a file on the Guest OS's Desktop folder), while the machine is shutdown. Is there a possible way to do using VMware ?
Thank you in advance!
If the virtual machine is off (guest OS shut down, not just suspended) and Player interface is closed, then you can mount the virtual disk to the host as a drive. Then you can edit/copy/whatever the files on that drive. Unmount before trying to power the VM back on.
