Share Files between Windows Host machine and Ubuntu linux virtual machine

I wanted to share the folders or files from my windows host machine to my ubuntu linux virtual machine. Here are the following steps one has to follow to achieve this.

a) First we need to create a shared folder. Go to Virtual Machine Settings -> Options -> Shared Folders. You can see the virtual machine settings in the top of the Vmware player.
    Then create a shared folder and point it to the windows folder which you want to share.

b) To view the shared folder in your ubuntu linux virtual box, go to /mnt/hgfs/ and then locate your shared folders.
