Potential Poblems

Cannot Share Drive in Windows 10

Problem Description  
I also cannot add my shared drive in some instances. I enter the Docker application in the bottom right of Windows, click Settings 
> Shared Drives, select my chosen drive “C:”, and then when prompted for my password I correctly enter my password.

My username is also correct.

It just bloody resets to unticked.
Sometimes it works, but it requires resetting after every time I log out and back in.
Docker version 18.09.0, build 4d60db4
Windows 10 Pro - 1803 - Build 17134.472

Current WA : Use drive C: for mapping HOST directories

Deploy an Angular App to NGINX Docker Webspace on Window Pro

d:\dev\myProjects\dobby-the-companion> ng build --base-href /dobby-the-companion/
d:\dev\myProjects\dobby-the-companion> scp -r  dist\dobby-the-companion  c:\docker\nginx\

Testing Angular App
Webserver URL: http://localhost/dobby-the-companion/

Angular router Details
const appRoutes: Routes = [
  { path: '', redirectTo: '/login', pathMatch: 'full' },
  { path: 'login', component: LoginComponent },
  { path: 'goals', component: GoalsComponent, canActivate: [AuthGuard] },

http://localhost/dobby-the-companion/ -> will be redirect to component: LoginComponent
