Hi, I created a RancherOS image, and a Volume and mounted it on this OS.

Now I would like to access a volume from my Windows 10 machine so I can send files and directories to it, that I will use later on the RancherOS Docker image mount.

How can I do that?

Hi Tony,

I believe that this should be achievable with an NFS mount.
