#StackBounty: #windows #ubuntu #subst #fstab How to mount a substed drive in windows Ubuntu subsystem

Bounty: 100

My development environment on Windows includes substed folders, i.e. the folder c:MyBuild may be substed to a drive letter, say t:

In a Ubuntu subsystem terminal, I can bind the folder to a mount, as this

sudo mount --bind  /mnt/c/MyBuild /mnt/t

This works fine in the current shell, but its not persistent, and if a bash script is invoked externally, this mount is not present, and so the script may fail saying, folder/mnt/t/someFolder don’t exist..

I did add the following to /etc/fstab, but its not working as expected

 /mnt/t /mnt/c/MyBuild none defaults,bind 0 0

How can I make this mount persistent in Windows Ubuntu subsystem?
