I am running Ubuntu 64-bit on VMWare workstation 10. I want to access the files on my windows 8 PC (both on same PC). I have checked "always enabled" for folder sharing on VMWare and gave path to my drives (E,F,G and a folder on my PC). Installed VM tools, they're upto date.
The first two worked fine for me. But for the third one -
"Error: cannot mount filesystem: No such device" is being displayed. I am not able to find the shared files in
sudo apt-get install open-vm-tools sudo mkdir /mnt/hgfs sudo mount -t vmhgfs .host:/ /mnt/hgfs
Should I enable any permission access for my drives. For the sharing properties of the drives on W8, I enabled "Share this folder" option. Even then I cannot see shared folders in my hgfs (ubuntu). I am a new bee to linux OS, so please help.
