        When I askied a similar question in AskUbuntu.com it appears the better way is to have Linux store your scripts, documents, etc. you want shared with WSL on an NTFS partition which Linux can write to. The other option is even uglier having to setup a second machine as a Open-SSH server and storing your scripts and documents there so they can be accessed from your dual-booted laptop. I looked at Paragon (they charge for it) and Ext2FSD but it clobbers stuff in 64-bit mode (version .68 or .69 IIRC). There is WinBTRFS but that is still one-man experimental project and I don't feel like using BTRFS in Linux. +1 for your request and I'd appreciate comments of a better way of sharing the same file on a dual-boot laptop between Windows 10 WSL and Ubuntu16.04.

          Something like this was planned for FCU but never made the cut. A similar [voice](https://wpdev.uservoice.com/forums/266908-command-prompt-console-bash-on-ubuntu-on-windo/suggestions/13522845-add-fuse-filesystem-in-userspace-support-in-wsl) outlines a technical way of accessing Linux files and has more votes. The current methods 1) Ext2FSD has many bugs reported and 2) Paragon seems to be a pay for access.

          Windows 10 has superior support for new laptops with NVMe, Thunderbolt3, multiple external monitors making it the current go-to OS for some users. Dual booting Linux just to move bash scripts to NTFS partition for WSL to access is a pain.

          The WSL team has been "looking" at this for almost 18 months. With Linux kernel and Ext4 being "open source" written in "C" it shouldn't haven taken so long. How much longer will people have to wait?

              There is [wabasj](https://github.com/cerebrate/wabash/blob/master/README.md):

              "So, you want to keep daemons or disowned processes running under Windows Services for Linux even without a bash console open? Well, look no further, friends and users, because wabash is here to help, a simple utility which keeps the WSL session going in the background all the time. It is also capable (0.5.2 and later) of automatically starting any system services/daemons capable of being started by service(8)."
