Investigate adding reverse mounting support for Windows #74
referenced this issue
Mar 29, 2017
@dustymabe thanks! FWIW, I'm currently trying to come up with the best high-performance option for Windows users using Drupal VM (and potentially other Vagrant VMs like Homestead, Phansible, etc.); right now the most reliable option is a manual Samba-based reverse mount (you install samba in the VM, create a share, then manually mount it in windows and create a network location for easy access).
But if I could get SSHFS working, and especially if it could be managed in the Vagrantfile (instead of a more manual process), that would be the killer solution for many Windows devs I work with on projects like Drupal or Symfony apps.
@dustymabe - Just having the option for reverse mount would be a godsend. The problem is, any of the available options besides
Reverse mounts allow the VirtualBox filesystem to be used internally, which allows caching and is much faster for loading Drupal sites. And developers can still access the files in Windows and use their heavyweight IDEs (granted, file access in the IDE is slower, so global search-and-replace is slower...).
