    Thanks, that clears up a lot of my confusion. ☺

    So if I use my internal drive for storage, will I be able to see the same files and folders from both sides (both the virtual and native Mac sides) equally? Is the sharing then reciprocal? Or will I only have access to see the files and folders associated with (or shared with?) the virtualisation program while in the virtualisation program?

    I agree. Parallels sounds like a good entry point for all of this. I’ll give it a try soon.

    The share is both ways. If you create a folder on the Mac and share it inside of the virtual machine, the same folder is still available on your Mac so you can modify files from either and both will see the changes. Likewise backing them up on the Mac will also back them up for the virtual machine since it is the same folder (i.e., only one copy of then files)

    Thanks, John. I think I’m understanding this process now. I’ll give Parallels a try first and followup with any further questions as they arise. 🙂

    Sounds like a plan Todd, I’m always here if you have more questions. Good Luck!
