I have a virtual 32bit XP machine on my Windows 7 64bit Pro box. In Windows 7 Pro, I have created several shared directories. I can map to these shares from the virtual machine, but when I try to access the mapped drives from the virtual machine, the file access is Reeeeeeal Slooooooow. It can sometimes take minutes to change directories in File Manager, or within the file dialogue box in a program. Access to these directories and files when I am on the host is fine.
I did not have this problem when I mapped to an exact duplicate structure of the shared directories when they resided on my company server. Only when I try to map to shared folders on the host of the virtual machine do I have this problem.
Has anybody else tried to map to shares on the host from a virtual machine on the same host? Are you seeing the same problems?
