Although VMs are not real machines, they are computers, too. Today, in everyday work, we need to exchange some information between computers. Often, we will need to copy some information, maybe configuration data or files between our host computer and VMs.
While we can copy information and even files using the features Shared clipboard and Drag and drop, we don’t always want to duplicate data. This is even more important if you’re using an SSD drive in your computer.
