How To Copy Files between Virtual PC and Host PC

With Virtual PC 2007, you can run multiple operating systems (Guest OS - Windows 98/Me/2000/XP/Vista/2008, OS/2) on the same physical computer (Host OS - Windows Vista Business/Enterprise/Ultimate, Windows XP Pro/Tablet PC). 

The biggest advantage of using Virtual PC 2007 is that you can test an application on multiple virtual machines instead of actual physical computers. You can even set up a test network, by installing VPC and then creating VMs for each server and workstation that you want on your test network.

While working on a Virtual PC, you may sometimes need to access files from the host PC. Copying files from Virtual PC to the Host PC or vice versa is a cinch. Click on the Edit option in the menu & select Settings. A dialog box showing various settings & their current values. Choose Shared Folders in that list & in it's accompanying panel, click on the Share Folder... button. This opens another dialog box that lets you browse through the folders in the physical computer. Select a folder and this can be used to share files between the Virtual PC and Host PC.
