I've got an XP VM set up in Fusion to run a few apps that don't exist/are better than their Mac counterparts. Since Time Machine doesn't play nicely with a 20GB VM image, I don't backup this VM. Therefore, I don't save any files on the VM. I've been dragging the files to and from the VM for use, but always storing them on the Mac file system. It is kind of a pain so I've been looking at using the shared folder option in Fusion. My question is if I will encounter any problems if I set up folder sharing to let my XP VM read and write these files directly from the Mac file system. I'd hate to have XP destroy the files or even my Mac file system by giving it direct access. Can people doing this comment on their experience?
