We can share files in VM ubundu with hosted windows, we can also share a fold in hosted windows system to it VM ubundu.
Step 1: set up the shared fold in the VM setting:
Step 2: There is problems with vm hgfs modules of open-vm-tools and it has not been resolved yet. So we need to walk around this.
We should go to ubundu and download the patches:
git clone https://github.com/rasa/vmware-tools-patches.git
Step 3: Obtain the lates version of the vmware-tools:
cd vmware-tools-patches ./download-tools.sh 8.1.0 Untar and apply the patches ./untar-and-patch.sh
Step 4: Compile and install the patched files.
Then we can see the shared fold here in ubundu: /mnt/hgfs
