    Getting files from Windows VMware instance to Host Ubuntu 12.04

    Hello, so I see some threads on how to share folders from a Vmware player instance of Ubuntu to Windows, but not the other way around? How do I do this for a Windows 7 Vmware to host Ubuntu? What should I be cautious of for security purposes? I thought I could copy/paste files from Vmware into Ubuntu but that doesnt seem to work.
