As you can see in the above screenshot, I have added a share named python-bio.

Mount the share

Run the following command to mount it:

sudo vmhgfs-fuse -o nonempty -o allow_other .host:/python-bio /home/tangf/mounts/python-bio/

In my case, I am mounting share python-bio to folder /home/tangf/mounts/python-bio/.

Verify

You can then change directory to the mount folder and list the files in it using command ‘ls -alt’
