File Sharing between Hyper-V Host and Guest

You can share files between hosts and guests on Hyper-V in the following ways. Hyper-V is a Microsoft hardware virtualization that allows you to create and run software versions of computers, called virtual machines. Each virtual machine acts like a full-fledged computer, running the operating system and programs. How to create a Virtual Machine (VM) on Hyper-V you can see in another Bardimin article, Creating a Virtual Machine In Windows 10 Without Applications. In this article, Bardimin will discuss some ways to share files you might do between Host and Guest on Hyper-V. Sharing devices and local resources between Host and Guest on Hyper-V Open Hyper-V Manager and click "Hyper-V Settings". Make sure "Enhanced Session Mode Policy" on the Server and "Enhanced Session Mode" on the User have been activated. If your Hyper-V host is running Windows 11, Windows 10, or Windows 8.1, Enhanced Session Mode is enabled by default. But if running Windows Server 2016 or Windows Server 2012 R2, do this first. Enable the "Hyper-V Guest Service Interface". You can activate it by right-clicking on the Virtual Machine and selecting "Settings". Then on "Integration Services", check "Guest service". The Hyper-V Guest Service Interface provides a Hyper-V host interface for copying files to or from a virtual machine. Then run the Virtual Machine that you have created.Next click "Show Options" on the pop-up window. And then select the "Local Resources" tab and click the "More" button. Next, in...

File Sharing – NTFS Permissions vs Share Permissions

Implementing File Sharing Permissions should be with care to provide access to a piece of content. Arbitrary file sharing permissions can cause you to cannot access a file or folder or vice versa, even creating vulnerabilities. On Windows, you don't have to worry about Permissions because it's already set by the operating system.

However, some important differences between the two will determine which one you use.

NTFS Permissions are used to manage access to files and folders stored on a volume with the NTFS file system format. By default, it inherited permissions from the root folder to the files and sub-folders under it, although this inheritance can be disabled. The major advantage of NTFS Permissions is that these permissions affect both local and remote users. NTFS Type Permissions PermissionAllowed AccessReadUsers or groups can read the file and view the attributes, ownership, and permissions assigned.WriteUsers or groups can add and write files, change their attributes, view their ownership, and view permission settings.Read & ExecuteUsers or groups...

Restricting Access to File Sharing by IP addresses in Windows 11

Restricting access to file-sharing will improve data security and prevent ransomware attacks. File sharing is a commonly used method in organizations by utilizing available networks. There are various ways of doing file sharing, ranging from cloud-based ones to the simplest with two PCs. In organizations with a local network (LAN), you can file sharing by storing files on a server. Then access to the file can be set based on the user and access rights. In this article, Bardimin will discuss how to do file sharing on a PC. Since we don't want everyone in the organization to access, the file being filtered, we're going to limit the file to only being accessible to A PC with a specific IP address. Advantages of File Sharing 1. Save Time PC users in the organization don't need to email files, upload, or download files using the internet. Instead, they can quickly access directly the files they need when they need them. File sharing transfers are much faster than sending over the internet since file sharing uses a local network at a much faster speed. Transfer speeds can reach 1Gb/s – 10 Gb/s, depending on the device used. 2. Save Money Because it does not use the internet, file sharing will reduce the cost of using the internet. 3. Prevent Data Loss In file-sharing that uses a server, you can back up data regularly. And in the event of a crash on a PC, the data is not lost because it is still on the server. 4. Restricting Access You can restrict access to a file whether it can...
