Most of the files I use in my virtual desktop environment are centrally located in a share I make accessible to the host and all the guests for ease of transfer between them.  However, there is one guest I keep fairly isolated for security reasons.  This is great, but when I need a file, it (has previously) required me to start that guest, wait, login, move the files I need to the share, then shutdown.  It’s frequent enough to be annoying.  I’d leave it up, but I prefer to keep my BIG-IP LTM VE and a couple linux guests running and there’s only so many resources.  Anyway, the annoyance hit the tipping point today and I found out that in my VMware Workstation, there is a tool to mount the guest drives in the host OS.
