I have a MBP (10.7.3) with 4 accounts (Admin, mine, wife, guest).

I have a legal copy of Windows 7 Ultimate as an .IMG file that I have installed in Virtualbox on my Admin account. I want to move the 2 GB .IMG file to my account via Admin's Public Folder. The Folder is set to Shared and the file is in the folder. However, it doesn't show up in my Public folder.

Maybe I am confused about the use of the Public folder (haven't had to use it before). I regarded it as one folder that is the same across accounts on the computer.

I checked out Mac 101: File Sharing and it seems as if I have done everything correct.

Is there a size limit on files maybe?

Finally figured it out:

I was looking in the wrong place...namely my own Public folder the entire time.

Macbook Pro/Users/Administrator/Public....while logged onto my own account. Then I can see the folders of other users.
