How can I access my Windows files through Endless OS?

When you are dual-booting Endless OS with Windows, you can access your Windows files from Endless OS. To do this, follow the steps below:

  1. Open the Documents application.

  3. Select the Windows drive from this list. It will have a label like 500 GB Volume, depending on the size of your Windows drive.

  4. Browse to your documents. They will typically be in the Users folder on your Windows drive.

For security reasons, you must be an administrator in Endless OS to access your Windows files – if you are not, you will be asked to enter an administrator password.

If you have more than one Windows drive, they will all be shown under Other Locations. At present, it is not possible to access your Endless OS files while running Windows.
