    I have no problem transferring from Mac to Fusion, but how do I transfer files from Fusion to Mac? Is it possible to drag and drop b/c I can't figure it out. Help!

    Do you mean you have Windows installed under fusion and you want to be able to transfer files?

    I've set up a shared folder in fusion that points to my home directory in OS X. When I'm in OS X, obviously I just use everything as normal. Under Fusion/Windows I can browse this folder normally under Windows. Drag, drop, everything - it just appears as a network folder.

    Select your virtual machine from the launcher menu and click "Options"

    Click the plus in the bottom left-hand corner, click "Add Shared Folder"

    Set the name to something like 'home' and location to what you want.

    Load up your virtual machine and then go you can go to start -> run and type "\\.host". Browse into Shared Folders, and voila!

    You can map this folder to a network drive if you like, then it will load up every time on boot
