Docker - Shared Drive (Windows)


shared drive


For windows


Shared drives require port 445 to be open between the host machine and the virtual machine that runs Linux containers.

Allow connections to on port 445 (the Windows host) from (the virtual machine).

I ended up by giving a trust to the adapter.


See Shared drives

Make your drive accessible to your containers.

  • Docker > Settings > Shared Drive

You need to reset your credentials everytime that they will expired otherwise your bind mounts will not be available.

Test it ! With the following, you should be able to navigate your c disk inside the container at the data mount point.

docker run --rm -it -v C::/data alpine sh
