VMWare Fusion 6 Windows 7 VM On Mac - Mirrored Folders

Last Modified: 2016-01-25
I run a Windows app on Windows 7 that I need to backup to a local folder on the guest.  Then I need to have those contents mirrored to a folder on the Mac (OS X Mavericks).  So when I run TimeMachine the contents will be backed up.

I have the Windows app writing to C:\Users\[username]\My Documents\QuickBooks-Windows-Backup

but when I go to /Users/[username]/Documents on the Mac the QuickBooks-Windows-Backup isn't there.  Nor can I find it in spotlight.  I have sharing enabled (see screenshot) https://gyazo.com/8e1184e3805d39d4b313605973411ad6

Please help me to get this working.
