For some time now, I've been using virt-manager to manage my virtual machines. When I want to copy a file from the host to the vm, I have been using scp to copy via ssh over the network. This is kind of tedious, and there must be a way to share a folder similar to VirtualBox. So how can I best share a folder between a KVM host and guest using virt-manager?

You could use 9p sharing as described at http://www.linux-kvm.org/page/9p_virtio .

Other possibilities include usage of a network file system like NFS or CIFS/Samba.
