Mounted Drive is Not Visible in PowerShell


Before proceeding with troubleshooting, be sure to implement the following prerequisites for connecting to file systems from Windows instances:

Symptom: After installing Windows NFS client, you can successfully mount the file system from either Windows File Explorer or the Command Prompt (CMD) using mount or net use commands. However, the file system drive is not visible in PowerShell.

Cause: A known issue exists where drives mapped from outside PowerShell aren't visible from within PowerShell.

Solution: Unmount the file system and remount the file system within PowerShell, using options to make it visible in File Explorer and in the CMD application.
