What is the best way to share a folder between Win7 64bit (host) and Ubuntu 10.10 (guest) in VMware player?
I can setup the sharing just fine (using vmware-tools), but all shared files are root:root owned with 777 permission set. Which, well, sucks.
What can I do to have shared files with preserved ownership and permissions?
I'm guessing I would need some kind of a file container, that would get mounted in Ubuntu as a block device (if so, it would need to be dynamic, i.e. expand with size of contained files). But maybe there is a better solution?
