Parallels disk mounting

Recommended Posts

I know there are many of us using Parallels on this forum.  I recently had a VM go into a blue screen of death spiral and it forced me to find a feature that I didn't know existed.


ProTip: If you right click on a Stopped (must be shutdown, not suspended!) .pvm file, you can select "Open With --> Parallels Mounter.app" and it will mount the drive on your Mac.  You can copy/manage files on or off the drive without starting the VM.


I think this will save me loads of time in the future, and I hope this helps someone else as well :)
