Can I share docker images between windows and linux?

(Kammerto) #1

Dear Community,
I use a dualboot system on my computer with the operating systems Ubuntu 18.04 and Windows 10. At the moment I use three “Linux exclusive” docker containers under Ubuntu 18.04 (docker compose):

  • Gitea
  • Bitwarden
  • Plex

However, when working with Windows 10, I can’t access the three containers and reinstalling them doesn’t make sense. I’ve read that Docker Windows can access and use Linux containers.

Is there a possibility to adjust the installation paths of the Docker containers under Linux and Windows to a common “share” drive, so that Linux and Windows could access the same containers?

Thank you very much for your time and help.
