Accessing physical hard drive from virtual XP

    Question

  • I have Windows 7 Professional 64bit.  I have installed XP Mode to run some legacy programs which will not run under Windows 7.

    I have tried to set up a home network between Windows 7 and XP Mode, but I cannot figure out how to access my files on the physical machine's hard drive from the programs running in XP Mode.  When I view Network computers from either machine, I only see the one computer on each.  Any help would be much appreciated.

    Enable the integration features and you should see the host HDD partitions as mapped network drives.
