VM shared folder settings:

enter image description here

What all I have tried:

  • Reinstalling VMware tools.
  • Uninstall, install VMware tools.
  • Turned Windows Firewall off.
  • Edit out /etc/fstab to include the following:

    .host:/Desktop /mnt/hgfs vmhgfs defaults,ttl=5,uid=1000,gid=1000 0 0

  • Edit out /etc/rc.local to include:

    mount.vboxsf -w Desktop /mnt/hgfs

None of these work. My /mnt/hgfs is still empty.

Any solutions for me?
