Welcome to LinuxQuestions.

Which virtualization software are you running? VirtualBox VMware etc?

With VirtualBox you can share folders between the host and guest if you install guest additions.

With VMware you can install VMware tools to share folders between the host and guest.

You can share files using Windows networking (SMB/CIFS) which is called samba in the windows world. It depends on how your guest network is configured but the easiest is to configure the guest on the LAN.

I'm no longer using virtual box, am using vm ware now. This should work for Ubuntu also, right?

Look at this article.

samba is the linux implementation of the Windows file sharing network protocol.
