I have folders on my Mac I access from my Windows VMs. (For example, I don’t want things like Dropbox mirrors duplicated into my VM).
VMWare Fusion’s instructions on how to share files are easy enough:
I want to access the mapped z:\ drive from PowerShell.
Attempt 1: FAIL
Hrm. Ok, What does it say Z is mapped to?
Attempt 2: FAIL
Hrm. I wonder if this is important? (spoiler alert: It IS important =)
SUCCESS! Part 1:
…but then WHY can’t I cd z:\, if it was mapped? YAY TWITTER:
Thank you, @dustinvenegas, for helping this PowerShell n00b (me) to get this working!
I hope this post helps others who run into the same challenge :)
