As nice as Drag-and-drop is, when it fails, you'll have to use the shared folder approach instead, which works well. It does require Virtual Machine Additions be installed (From the menu, select Action, then Install or update Virtual Machine Additions).

To create a shared folder:

  1. From the menu bar, Select Edit, then Settings.
  2. In the left-pane, click on Shared Folders.
  3. In the right-pane click the Share Folder... button.
  4. Select the folder on the main system you wish to have access to, and set the drive letter. If you want this permanent, check the box for Share every time.
  5. Click OK twice and your shared folder should be active as the specified drive.
