Custom WSL2 docker location

Hi, when using Docker with WSL2, the .vhdx files are created in $user/AppData/Local/Docker/wsl . It would be nice if this location was user-configurable (like it is in stable Docker), in order to use other partitions/disks and not fill up the Windows partition.

I have the same question. Have you solved this issue?

WSL 2 is only available in Windows 10 builds 18917 or higher… as of 12/30/2019, these are only available via the Insider program. Today’s official OS build is 18363.535. You can find your OS build under ‘About your PC’ in system settings.
