Mounted Drive is Not Visible in File Explorer


Before proceeding with troubleshooting, be sure to implement the following prerequisites for connecting to file systems from Windows instances:

Symptom: After installing Windows NFS client, you can successfully mount the file system from Windows, but the file system drive is not visible in File Explorer.

Cause: A standard user is trying to access a file system that was mounted using the Administrator: Command Prompt (CMD). When mounting file systems, it isn't necessary to run the Command Prompt as Administrator.

Solution: Unmount the file system and then remount the file system using a standard Command Prompt (CMD). See To remount a file system with a standard Command Prompt (CMD).
