Since you question is related to VMware I recommend posting this on their dedicated forums.

Hi there,

To transfer a file from the physical computer to the virtual machine, simply drag it to the virtual machine window (where the guest OS is displayed). You can also right-click "Copy" on the physical computer and right-click "Paste" in the guest OS.

To share folders on your physical PC to make them read-only (for security) or read/write (if needed) by the virtual machine.
