My ramblings on the stuff that holds it all together
I encountered this error when a Windows 7 VM running under Fusion logs on, VM tools is mapping a drive to your OS X home directory and results in the following Windows error message
Cannot Access Shared Folder \\vmware-host\Shared Folders\My Desktop
I hit this error after I used Carbon Copy Cloner to clone my OS X installation from a SATA disk a new SSD drive and then decided to move my home directory back onto the SATA disk (I’m using one of these to mount 2 disks) to save space on the SSD (info on how to do that here), so the underlying file-system path had changed.
To fix this open the shared folders settings for your VM in Fusion (Virtual Machine/Settings/Sharing.
Hopefully that helps someone else out there who is scratching their head
