I'm using VMWare 12 on a Windows 10 machine to run a Ubuntu 16.04 OS. Due to some testing I need to share files using a shared folder.
So far I've enabled the folder sharing on the virtual machine, selected the folder to share (it is in the main C:/ drive on Windows) and enabled folder sharing on my private network. However, I still cannot find the shared folder under /mnt. In fact there's not even the /hgfs folder.
How can this be and how can I solve it?
In case I cannot solve it, is there a better way to share files with the host than a shared folder?
