    Sharing XP Files from Hyper-V


    I'm running Windows XP on Windows 10 with Hyper-V. How do I share files between XP and the c drive on my physical computer? This was so easy with VPC 2007.

    Years ago before SMB Networks and Home Networks became popular we had the sneakernet, copy files onto a floppy disk [small at 1.44MB max] then take the disk to another computer. One should be able to do the same but with USB Thumb/Flash drives, copy from one OS then put on the other OS. I prefer the NAS drive attached to my Router.

    Hyper-V is designed for enterprise networks where security is very important. Drag and drop cannot be done securely so it is not supported. I use Google Drive. The requirement for XP is that the disk be NTFS. With Google Drive on host and guest it is straightforward to transfer files. DropBox also works. And of course, flash drives. OneDrive is not supported in XP.
