I had to update my Windows 7 OS last night because it did not except my Software Key. I did that all successfully but now I can't access all of my files on the MAC side. It seems like the \\vmware-host\Shared Folders\Documents drive is not mapped. It is the standard z drive that VMware installs when you initially set it up and I can't get it to re-map the drive. Any help or ideas?

Add Folders, and point it to were it used to be, or you can select another folder

Go into the Virtual Machine's settings and then select Sharing.  Enable Sharing.  Add or select the folders you want to share or mirror.
