** Enable WSL and install Linux distribution of choice:
- Enable WSL: Search for “turn windows features on or off”.
- Use windows store app to search for and install desired distribution, e.g. „Ubuntu“.
- You’ll be prompted to create a new username and password for your Linux account.
** WSL location: With the deprecation of the legacy WSL/lxss, the location of the new rootfs directory is (in case of Ubuntu 18.04 LTS as the Linux distribution of choice):
Note: Do not, under any circumstances, create and/or modify Linux files using Windows apps, tools, scripts, consoles, etc. The files will become unreadable inside WSL.
Setup Work/Development Environment
** Mounting DrvFs: Use the regular Linux mount command. For example, to mount a removable drive X: as /mnt/x directory, run the following commands:
$ sudo mkdir /mnt/x
$ sudo mount -t drvfs X: /mnt/x
Unmount the drive:
$ sudo umount /mnt/x
Note: DrvFs is a filesystem plugin to WSL that was designed to support interop between WSL and the Windows filesystem.
