Virtual machines are isolated containers, so the guest operating system in the virtual machine doesn’t have access to your computer’s file system. You’ll have to set up shared folders in a program like VirtualBox or VMware to share files.
Also, remember that (if you have it turned on) your virtual machine also has access to the network... so you can also just use standard network file sharing; that's what I usually do, since I have to share files among physical computers, too.
