 +===== Script to mount *all* drives =====
 +By default, WSL just mounts physical drives around at boot. This script mounts all drives Windows knows about to directories under /mnt:
 +
 +<code>
 +for DRV in `wmic.exe logicaldisk get name | grep : | awk '{print tolower($1)}'` ; do
 +    MNT=/mnt/${DRV::1}
 +    if mount | grep -q $MNT ; then
 +        echo $MNT already mounted
 +    else
 +        sudo mkdir -p $MNT
 +        sudo mount -t drvfs $DRV $MNT
 +    fi
 +done
