Share folder between Ubuntu 11.04 (Virtual) and Win7?

I assume the Windows 7 is the host and you don't want to do it across the network? In that case you do it from your virtualization software (VirtualBox, one might hope?). When you're in the Ubuntu VM, you'll find in the VMware menu "install guest additions", which has to be done first. Then you can use the shared folders functionality in the machine settings to determine which folders will be automatically available to the Ubuntu system.

- I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.
You are using Windows' Virtual PC tool to run Linux in a VM? Don't do that! Install Oracle's VirtualBox and run Linux in that as a virtual machine. It supports this (sharing folders) without problems. It (VBox) is also open source software. I use it extensively, to run Window systems under Linux, and to run Linux systems under Windows. In fact, I run a full 3 node Hadoop database on virtual machines on my laptop at work, under Windows 7 as a host!Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!
