How to share a datastore folder to windows machines

Hi
Is it possible to make a folder stored in the ESXi datastore accessible from windows machines, so that they can map the drive?
I understand both systems have different file systems, Windows uses NTFS and ESXi uses VMFS but can this somehow be done?

Thanx!!

To copy files to and from VMFS one can use winscp, may have to open firewall ports.
