To Share Files between Windows-OS and Mac-OS (VirtualBox)

1 Access Mac Files on Windows

Open File Explorer. In the address bar (that is 'This PC') at the top of the window, type \ followed by your Mac’s IP address (Found at System Preference > Sharing > File Sharing' tab) When you're done, it should look something like this: \ or \iosmac or afp://iso-mac-pro or smb://iso-mac-pro, then hit Enter button.

A new window will pop up asking for a username and password. Enter the user credentials exactly as they appear on your Mac.
That is, Your Mac OS Username (start terminal and enter 'whoami') and Mac OS Password.

2 Checkmate!

Now you will be viewing your shared Mac directory(files) within Windows File Explorer.
