WSL Attach VHD or VDI

Aug 6, 2020

WSL 2 uses a Virtual Hardware Disk (VHD) to store your Linux files. But they didn't build the utility to attach another VHD.

You could convert .vdi to .img then mount the .img within WSL Ubuntu (NOTE: I didn't try this)

There is another method using network block device module (rmmod nbd), but WSL Ubuntu didn't support this.
