I'm using MSYS (MinGW UNIX environment) to get a working UNIX-like environment on my Windows 7 workstation. When I start the MinGW shell, I can see that my home directory is
/home/oded.a, and running
mount shows me that it comes from
msys\1.0 under the MinGW installation directory.
It works fine and I can put files there, write and read them using the MSYS environment utilities and shells, but when I open the Windows 7 file explorer and browse to
msys\1.0, I can't see a directory named
home and I would really like to be able to access my MSYS home files using Windows tools. Any idea where the home directory is actually stored?
This is the output of
mount on my system:
C:\Program Files (x86)\MinGW\msys\1.0 on /usr type user (binmode,noumount) C:\Program Files (x86)\MinGW\msys\1.0 on / type user (binmode,noumount) C:\Users\oded.a\AppData\Local\Temp on /tmp type user (binmode,noumount) c: on /c type user (binmode,noumount) q: on /q type user (binmode,noumount)
