Qemu Gurus,

I am moving from VBox to Qemu.

I installed qemu-w64-setup 20210203 on my Windows10 host machine. Using qemu-img I was successfully able to convert the vdi to qcow2 format. I am trying to setup a file share with my Windows10 guest running using qemu-system-x86_64

Using the below from my  Windows10 host command line I am able to startup my virtual m/c

qemu-system-x86_64  -m 4G -smp 5 -drive file=filename.qcow2 -device nec-usb-xhci,id=usb,bus=pci.0,addr=0x4 -deviceusb-tablet rtc base=localtime -device intel-hda -device hda-duplex

How to do I go about setting  up a file share between my Windows10 Guest and my Windows10 host?

I have unsuccessfully tried the below links:




Enabled smb on my Windows10 Host https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-server/storage/file-server/troubleshoot/detect-enable-and-disable-smbv1-v2-v3

Can some please guide me on:

·       what additional s/w do I need to install on my Window10 Host and Windows10 Guest ? I downloaded https://qemu.weilnetz.de/w64/qemu-w64-setup 20210203.exe and installed in on my Windows10 Host

·       what additional parameters should I pass to qemu-system-x86_64 for sharing the Windows10 Host folder

·       what additional steps do I run on Windows10 Guest to access the Windows10 Host folder

Appreciate any help.

Thank you,
