Not able to share drives on Windows 10 - Docker for Windows Version (19925)

(Zarvak) #1

I can’t share my C: drive. I click on it, it asks for my credentials which I set correctly and then just “uncheck” the box by its own… so I cannot share the drive.
Is this a known bug? I’m running last edge version: Version (19925)

This is the message when I try to mount a directory directly with the run… the Share it window opens, then I introduce my credentials… an I get:

PS C:…\system32> docker run --rm -v c:/Users:/data alpine ls /data
C:\Program Files\Docker\Docker\Resources\bin\docker.exe: Error response from daemon: An error occurred while sharing drive.
See ‘C:\Program Files\Docker\Docker\Resources\bin\docker.exe run --help’.

Are you on a corporate network?
I’ve had exactly the same problem and it turns out that the company security policy forbids drive sharing across networks and there was nothing I could do about it :frowning_face:
Maybe see if your network guys could allow Docker to share the drive

Not in my case. Everything was in my laptop even if I was not in VPN.

In the end I had to uninstall and reinstall. Now it works again… But not being able why and how it happened doesn’t make me feel very comfortable. Let’s see.

Same problem. Click on share and it just unchecks itself. No error dialogs.



I am also getting this issue. When I review the log, here is the output:

[23:13:14.689][SambaShare][Error] Unable to mount D drive: Cannot find /var/run/desktop/ in the docker container

This last line has me confused and I can’t find a reference online anywhere:

  • Unable to mount D drive: Cannot find /var/run/desktop/ in the docker container

This has me at a complete stand-still and any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
