This question already has an answer here:

I am using Ubuntu on Windows 10. I've created a user id and there I created some folders. Now I want to copy those folders to my Windows folder in, say, E: drive. How can I get access to the folder that I created in Ubuntu in the Windows interface? I made that folder in /home/user/directory.

    Copy from Ubuntu command line. Accessing the WSL files from Windows is not supported. – muru Dec 20 '17 at 7:33

    @muru IMHO, this is not a duplicate. The asker of this question wants the opposite. To access a Windows disk from Ubuntu is a part of the solution but it does not solve it fully while Joe Ford’s answer does. – Melebius Dec 20 '17 at 9:20

    That's why my comment says the "opposite" is not supported. – muru Dec 20 '17 at 9:21

All Windows' disks are available through /mnt/, so you can copy it to E: using Bash:

cp -r /home/user/direcory /mnt/e

Root of Ubuntu is located at %LOCALAPPDATA%\CanonicalGroupLimited.UbuntuonWindows_79rhkp1fndgsc\LocalState\rootfs.
