    Specs:
    Retina, Mid 2012
    You have to enable Smart Mount in Parallels Desktop.

    1. Start up your Windows
    2. Hold down Option and Click the Parallels Icon(looks like a pause button) in the menu bar and select Configure.
    3. Click Option and Sharing
    4. Select Map Mac volumes to Windows


    Does that help?
