I don't recall never seeing /mnt/hgfs in a 'df' listing, so I don't have
a ready answer for you here.

My _guess_ is that somehow the configuration for your virtual machine
does not include Windows directories that you want shared with the VM.

Questions:

- have you checked to re-verify that the configuration for your VM
  still has a list of directories Windows directories that you want
  to be able to access from inside of your VM?

- the other thing is that every time I upgrade the kernel inside of the
  VM, I have to rerun the configuration (not install) script for VMware tools
  as 'root' inside of my VM

If neither of these fits your problem, the best I can offer is to
do some Google searching to see if others have run into the same problem
and have posted solutions.

Cheers,

Tom
