External Media + Multiple containers (Raspberry Pi 3B+)



I’ve read the article Communicate outside the container: Storage. I was wondering if a device could be mounted in a multiple container setup as a volume that could be shared by multiple containers. I have data on the storage which more than one container needs access to.

If that’s not possible, are there any potential workarounds? Or, am I misunderstanding what can be done in terms of mounting an external device?


Hey @jsadoski,

If you want to access external devices from multiple containers, you could follow the information from this page:

Exactly what kind of device are you trying to mount?

Thank you,
