File sharing

OrbStack supports two-way file sharing between Linux and macOS:

  • Access Mac files from Linux (via /mnt/mac)
  • Access Linux files from Mac (via ~/OrbStack or the OrbStack tab in Finder)

You can also use the file transfer commands if you prefer.

Mac files from Linux

To access Mac files from Linux, use the same paths you would on Mac, such as /Users/foo.

To be more explicit, you can prefix paths with /mnt/mac. Both of these paths point to Downloads:

  • /Users/foo/Downloads
  • /mnt/mac/Users/foo/Downloads

Linux files from Mac

All files in Linux machines are available from Mac through the OrbStack tab in Finder:

You can also find them at ~/OrbStack for command line access.
