Seeing the linux filesystem in a windows vm using VirtualBox

virtualboxusingfilesYES! Victory is mine!

This screenshot shows how to mount a linux folder inside of a windows guest vm. So now I can load up my windows software in the VM and I can edit them on my linux FS.

The instructions are in the help file for “Folder Sharing”. The key point is making sure to install the software on the windows VM.

Loving it (in case you couldn’t tell)
