folderimageI use Virtual PCs in development all the time and usually map a drive on the host pc in order to copy files.  Recently while reading Gary James’s blog he had an article that stated by just opening Windows Explorer on the virtual and on the Host you could copy between them.  Well since I use Vista 64 I was interested if this would work.  

Well lo and behold it worked perfectly, Microsoft usually gets slammed for making things hard, but this time it was so intuitive that I didn’t think to try it.  Anyway a kudos for Microsoft for making something easy, now if only they could make thier website that way.
