Mount Linux NFS Share on Windows 7
One convenient way of sharing files between Linux machines and Windows 7 computer is NFS. I am assuming that you have installed NFS server and added the folders you want to share on you Ubuntu machine.
You start by installing the NFS support in Windows 7, goto Control Panel > Programs and Features and select Turn Windows features on or off from the menu on the left. Now tick the box that says Services for NFS and click OK.
Go to My Computer click on Map Network Drive option, on the settings window, choose a Drive letter and then type in the path of your NFS share as shown below
Click on Finish and now you would be able to access the share via the mapped drive. This is very useful for accessing mythtv recordings locally via XBMC.
