Path of Linux User-Mode filesystem in Windows 10

Over the past few weeks I have been using the new functionality in the latest Windows 10 insider builds that allows you to run Ubuntu in User Mode on Windows 10. Or as it is also known: Windows Subsystem for Linux. The file system of Ubuntu is located at the following location:

%userprofile%\appdata\local\lxss

To navigate to this location from PowerShell the following code can be used:

1
2
Set-Location -LiteralPath 'C:\Users\Jaap Brasser\appdata\local\lxss\'
Set-Location -LiteralPath "${env:userprofile}\appdata\local\lxss\"

LinuxBashonWindows

By accessing this location it is easy to copy files from the Windows filesystem directly into the Linux file system.
