My host OS is Windows 7 and I have an Ubuntu 14.04 install as guest OS. I would like to know how can I share particular folders from Ubuntu and map them as a drive in Windows 7.

To share host file with guest vm in vmware workstation you can use VM->settings->options->shared folders. It's quite easy to use.

If you want to create a share directory on guest Ubuntu system and map it as a network driver on windows system. You may need to create a samba share and then map it in windows. on Utunbu:

  • $sudo apt-get install samba
  • $smbpasswd -a geek
  • $mkdir ~/Desktop/Share
  • $sudo vi /etc/samba/smb.conf

    [<folder_name>] path = /home/<user_name>/<folder_name> available = yes valid users = <user_name> read only = no browsable = yes public = yes writable = yes</li> 

  • $sudo service smbd restart
On windows map the \UtuntuIP-ADDRESS\SHARE-NAME to a network driver.

If you are working on virtual machine environment, you should be using 'Shared Folders' between your host OS and guest OS(running in vm).
