First off: I’m new to docker and I’m running it under Windows 7 Pro.
I’ve installed Docker quickstart Terminal and Kitematic together with virtualbox that came with it.
Now I started to experiment with an image that I pulled from somewhere. This is already a point to understand: Where did I pull it from? Out of thin air? I gave a command
docker pull in a quickstart window if I recall right, giving just a name.
After I gave a docker run command I got into a root prompt.
The first thing I notice is that I cannot see my c:\Users\me directory although I can see it in the boot2docker windows as /c/Users/me.
The machine that I ran was started with
docker run --name some_name -ti -v /Users:/Users etc. etc. /bin/bash
No my question: When I do changes to the docker-machine I’m currently running, are they volatile? Can I save my work and start the machine as “my-machine” locally later?
I suspect I have to restart the machine giving a different mount command to access my Windows Users directory.
