I've tried a few different ways to unzip an archive and then change directories to the D drive and have not had any success. What is the proper way to put and access files on the D drive for Windows Server 2019? None of the following work.

cd /d
cd /mnt/d
cd D:\

    Hi Derek,

    Do you mean accessing it from the build script, or from inside Docker container? Does this sample works for you?

    I looked at the sample and is how I came to the conclusion that I needed to work on the D drive.

    Our build process launches docker containers from gradle and uses PWD to mount a volume to the container. We're trying to extract our archive to D, change directories to D and then run gradle, but we're not able to change directories into D.

    I see, indeed I can repro this. Need to investigate more. For now, can you try to run it directly? Like this:

      - D:\titan-server-develop-d6a87c56159bf39205f979d493d71b594973e476\gradlew assemble endtoendTest

    Let us know if this works for you.

    Thanks for the suggestion. It did not work as expected, though. I think that it will work to trigger gradle, but gradle is still looking at the current working directory for the build definitions.

    Oh sorry, I just forgot to use one command, e.g. D:. I did not test with your config but this works:

    - ps: |
        mkdir D:\host | Out-Null
        echo 1 > d:\host\1
        d: # missed one <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
        cd d:\host

    Thank you! That little command got my scripts running.
