Its the same even if the shared folder is on the host machine. The point is when sharing a folder on the host machine with a virtual machine, the virtual machine does *not* see that folder natively, as ext3, but as a special shared filesystem. In the case of a windows VM it will not be seen as ext3, even if that is what it is on the host.
