DO NOT, under ANY circumstances, create and/or modify Linux files

corruption and/or damage your Linux environment requiring you to
uninstall & reinstall your distro!
Note: Your “Linux files” are any of the files and folders under
%localappdata%\lxss – which is where the Linux filesystem – distro and
your own files – are stored on your drive
Remember: There’s a reason we gave the %localappdata%\lxss\ folder ‘hidden’ & ‘system’ attributes 😉
