Thanks!

While you are in a Virtual Machine, try pressing the
right ALT key plus i on the keyboard. That will install
the Virtual Machine additions that make it easier to drag
and drop.

Drag and Drop. Or right click on the folders icon on the Virtual PC's status bar and share a "local" drive with the VPC environment.

What is the guest operating system? If it is Windows you can use drag and
drop if you have installed the virtual machine additions (from the Action
Menu). If it is Linux you need to set up a network connection (use Samba).
For further questions, use the microsoft.public.virtualpc newsgroup.
