Under Machine Settings there is a tab to setup Shared Folders which will allow you to select folder(s) from your host machine that you wish to share with the guest. After you set those up when you bring up your VM, you will find the share under Network as a share listed under VBOXSVR. If you wish, you can map a drive letter to the share so it will appear under Computer as a drive.

Hope this helps.

BTW. You need to have installed the guest additions in your guest machine for this to work.
