I am running a Windows Server 2012 installation inside VMWare Workstation. I have shared folders enabled, so drive
Z: is mapped to
\\vmware-host. I can correctly access this drive in Explorer (I can access
Z: inside the "normal" `cmd) and I can properly open files.
I opened PowerShell and tried to to
cd Z: and I got the following error:
cd : Cannot find path 'Z:\' because it does not exist.
Why can't PowerShell find the already mapped network drive?
I Googled a bit, and found the
New-PSDrive command. I ran the following:
New-PSDrive -Name 'Z' -PSProvider FileSystem -Root 'Z:\'
but I still get the same error as above. What do I need to do to access the VMWare shared folders inside PowerShell.
