Access Linux Filesystems in Windows 10 and WSL 2 #Windows #WSL @linuxiac
Starting with Windows 10 build 20211, Windows Subsystem for Linux 2 (WSL 2) offers a new feature: wsl –mount. This new parameter allows a physical disk to be attached and mounted inside WSL 2, which enables access to filesystems that aren’t natively supported by Windows (such as ext4).
For example, if you’re dual booting with Windows & Linux using different disks, you can now access your Linux filesystem in WSL 2.
The feature comes with limitations. For instance, as of now, it’s not possible to attach a single partition or mount ext4 partitions that are on the same physical disk as Windows OS. This is because the new improvement is only limited to separate physical disks. Also, you cannot attach USB flash drives even though it supports USB disks.
Once mounted, it’s also possible to access these disks through the Windows explorer by navigating to \wsl$ and then to the mount folder.
