Share host folders on Virtual Linux machine

In VMWare Workstation select the properties of the Virtual Machine and click on options. You can see an Shared Folders property. Enable this option and choose a folder on your host which you want to share.

VMWare tools need to be installed for this feature.

Now restart your virtual machine.

When the virtual machine is started you can access the shared folder in the directory /mnt/hgfs/[NAME OF THE SHARE]

Did this post help you in any way can you please leave a comment? This will motivate me writing more posts.
