OS: Windows 10 Home
Docker Toolbox version: 17.04.0-ce, build 4845c56
Virtualization using VirtualBox v5.1.20 (with extension packs installed FWIW).
When trying to mount a host directory from within the Quickstart Terminal I get weird results.
E.g., if I mount /c/parent_dir/child_dir:/opt/somedir, then /opt/somedir will be empty, but if I mount /c:/opt/somedir, then /opt/somedir will contain only parent_dir (but not any other directories i have under /c), inside it I will find child_dir (but not any other dirs under parent_dir) and child_dir will still be empty.
When mounting a directory under /c/Users I am able to see its content.
I see many references regarding the Docker Settings Whale that should be right-clicked, but I don’t have it. There’s nothing Docker-related in my systray and not in the Docker Toolbox installation dir.
So I tried mounting via VirtualBox’s Settings dialog of the “default” machine.
- When mounting C:\ to the default C_DRIVE I still get no results.
- Trying to mount ‘\?\c:’ to ‘c’ didn’t work either 'cause VirtualBox disables the OK button.
So I switched off the terminal as well as the “default” machine and tried adding a SharedFolders entry to default.vobx file:
<SharedFolder name="c" hostPath="\\?\c:" writable="true" autoMount="true"/>
Although I am able to see the shared folder inside “default”'s settings in VirtualBox, the result remains the same - the mounted folder is empty.
I went over many many posts in the forum, on Google and on github’s issues list and I can’t crack this one.
Any help on the matter of mounting a folder and/or on the matter of the missing settings applet would be appreciated.
