    Hi all,

    Can anyone tell me how to shift a large file from an XP host to an XP Guest.

    My Clipboard doesn't seem to work.

    Thank you in advance

    Regards

    Roger

    You can use network share between host an guest. Choose host-only networking type if you don't have real network card.

    Hello Roger,

    You may do that by creating a network share on your guest OS, accessing it from the primary OS and uploading the file.

    Clipboard synchronization tool works with text only. Copy-pasting files from host to guest via it will not work. Although such feature is in our plans for future versions already.

    Best regards,
    Tim

    While I can see that this does have some use (especially for people who are using virtual "servers" etc) I still feel that the networked drives or mounts is probably the fastest way to go about this.
