    Unable to see Mac and Documents after windows 7 Ultimate install
    Hello everyone hope all is well
    I have a question about parallels I have it running on my Macbook, and it has been running Windows 7 Professional fine. I recently updated to Win7 ultimate and now I am unable to view any of my documents that are on my desktop on my Mac on the windows side. I remember when I had a fresh install of 7 Professional all my documents I had on the Mac side showed up on the windows side. Would I have to delete the version of windows all together and install the VM from scratch? Any and all assistance would be welcomed and appreciated.
    Thank you

    I'm not familiar with Parallels, but in VMWare Fusion after an update like that you have to go back into "sharing" and re-designate those Windows folders and files that you wish to share. I'm not sure whether that's something Parallels would do automatically. I don't believe you would have to remove the VM and install again, however.

    Well that definitely comforting that I donít have to reinstall the OS I will check that out. Thanks for taking the time out and giving me a hand.
