Share files between WSL and Windows

If you create from Windows, files under the Windows Subsystem for Linux lxss directories, you will make some trouble for yourself because WSL won’t recognize the files. Both Windows and WSL will give errors when trying to delete those files. In the worst case you might need to reboot or event delete and refresh WSL from scratch.

The best way to work with files in WSL and Windows is to make those files under the usual Windows directories, NOT under WSL’s lxss
