  • You can do in multiple ways.

    1. Map host volume to container.

    For ex: docker run -it --volume=c:\host:c:\container windowsservercore cmd

    In above case all the files which you put on host folder c:\host will be visible inside under container folder and vice versa.

    2. You can use docker cp command to copy files from host machine to WindowsServerCore Docker.

        But currently it only works for Windowsserver container and not with Hyper-V container.
