VM Simulator - How to access file system.

Wondering if anyone knows how to access the vmware playbook simulator file system.

 

I don't mean to access programatically, I have that covered, rather to access the file system to copy files to the simulator in the shared directories.

 

when you plug a playbook into the usb drive, it shows up as a drive, and I'd like to access the same dir structure of the vm playbook to copy files for testing. e.g. if your app access's the pictures on the device, I'd like to copy some pictures for testing. Any ideas?

Re: VM Simulator - How to access file system.

Search the forum for information on using "ssh" to access the simulator, and specifically using either "scp" or "sftp" to transfer files in and out. You'll be doing this in the folders under /accounts/1000/shared, and if you're on Windows you'll probably be looking to install PuTTY to do all this. Feel free to ask for more help once you've dug through all that.
