If its a windows machine you can take RDP and copy the file from your local machine by Selecting the drives while connecting to RDP.
If its Linux, you can do it using WinSCP.

Hi

To copy any file from Windows OS to Linux OS(and VMware is Linux based) use WinSCP.

If you need to copy from you desktop to the VMware Datastore(VCD inventory is set in a NFS share) WinSCP is a good solution.

If you need to copy to your vCloud environment there is the option to upload and download files in the vCD Gui.

Hope this can help, or you may give more details what you need to do.

Using powercli you can copy a file from your workstation into a gust VM directly that is not connected to the network using the Copy-vmguestfile command....

Or you can download  and use the Vmware powerpack to do this as well via a GUI..
