GeneralFinally, a use for my old 3TB HDD Pin

I have an HDD disconnected but bolted into my computer chassis.

I got rid of it because it slowed things down and I have 6TB of NVMe anyway

Turns out, you cannot copy your freshly compiled WSL linux kernel to a filesystem unless it's ext4

It has symbolic links which rules out FAT, and illegal characters in filenames (NTFS).

So get this: To enable WSL to see your ext4 formatted SD card you must

1. Have an ext4 partition on non-removable storage, so that WSL can see it. Enter my HDD.
2. Recompile the WSL Linux kernel enabling SCSI over TCP
3. Install the kernel
4. Convince windows to talk SCSI over TCP
5. Wave a dead chicken over the whole thing.

Finally, you can mount an SD properly in WSL.

Why microsoft didn't enable it by default just floors me.
