I have two drives on my machine , C, and D. On setting up a WSL2 image on one occasion and a WSL2-backed docker image on another, I found my C drive was full. I was able to move over one of the images to my larger drive using the
wsl --unregister, and
wsl --import commands. But what I really want is to change the defaults so all future docker and non-docker WSL2 images are created on my larger drive. Is it possible to change WSL2's default image location?
I've looked through the
wsl documentation and I haven't been able to find anything so far.
UPDATE: Actually, it looks like migrating the docker-desktop-data distro may have permanently changed the location for docker instances, though I'm guessing not for instances created directly through WSL or the MS Store.
