it's just another machine within the network so sure you can. just create the share and then connect to it via windows UNC \\<yourphysicalmachine>

No.

If your VM is called NewYork, then you log in to it, and access the shared folder on NC by using command \\northcarolina\share

If the name doesn't work, you might need to use the IP address. You can find it by using command ipconfig froma command prompt or by doubleclicking on the computers in the notification area.

You might also need to allow Guest access to your machine which is disabled by default since Windows Vista if I'm not mistaken. Go to Control panel, user accounts and allow Guest access.

Yes it can be called through it's IP as you need create a share on your virtual machine and permit everyone to have access to it, and then from your physical machine call the virtual machine by its IP, Example \\192.168.75.120 (If it is asking for a password then supply the virtual machine admin credentials)

I do have around 80 machines running on my hyper V and they are not part of my domain so I used to call it through it's IP address all the time when I want to copy something.
