I cannot find stored images


I am using Docker on Windows 10 pro. Since I do not have direct access to the folder /var/lib/docker/aufs on the MobyLinuxVM (I don’t know why), I created an Ubuntu image then run a container and mounted this path into the container to check stored images.

Expected behavior:
When I run “ls” command I do expect to see the list of image IDs.

Actual Behavior:
I see a list of IDish (total 836) much more than number of images or even intermediate images. But, none of them is any of the Image’s ID.
