Making a file on Windows host available to the CentOS guest
Posted on 2012-12-24
I am doing some installations on CentOS under VMWare, and I need to make a file (which resides in Windows) available to the installer in CentOS.
I can simply drop and copy the complete file from Windows to CentOS, but the file is 4 GB large, which will increase my hard drive on the CentOS, and I don't know how to shrink it back, even if I delete it.
So instead I want to make the CentOS.iso file available inside of Linux. How can I do that?
I am using the VMWare player, but would consider the Workstation, if that's the answer.
