I've been trying to share a folder between my guest, Cent OS, and host, Windows 10, using VMWare Workstation 14 Player. The easiest way, drag&dropping files from host to guest, does not work properly, as one or more files always ends up being of a smaller file size and thus corrupted, even though there is enough storage space in the virtual machine.
Then I have done the steps below to enable folder sharing from the host to the guest OS:
HOST WINDOWS 10
- Shared the folder with everyone (to assure that there is no permit limitations with my files)
GUEST CENT OS
- VM -> Settings -> Options -> Shared Folders. And added my folder.
As per the suggestion of several posts on here, I've run vmware-config-tools.pl multiple times, e.g.:
sudo vmware-config-tools.pl -d --clobber-kernel-modules=vmhgfs
/mnt/hgfs folder, where my shared folder was meant to appear, remains empty!
I have gone through the VMware manual, and I am sure that I have followed their requirements. I am still not sure the VMware tools are installed completely, since typing
vmware-hgsclient in the guest OS terminal returns the error "command not found".
