Share folder with windows guest in KVM - Virtual Manager

I’m using KVM with Virtual-Manager for a Windows 10 Guest. Can anyone help in setting up a shared folder across guest and host systems.

Hi soozie
1.- It depends on the level of isolation of the VM versus the host
2.- I would configure Samba between the host and the guest and map it in Windows for security reasons


  1. It a personal laptop with clear linux as host os. So security is not that big of concern.
  2. I saw some tutorials with samba. Was looking for some native solution without network involvement.
    Can you point to some native solution.


Have a look at this tutorial.

Kond regards
