Hi. I am new to LakeFS. Can I mount the LakeFS branch in my Windows File Explorer similar to how we can mount onedrive? I could see that Microsoft Fabric has something called OneLake which can be mounted in the file explorer. My use case, A spark job creates 30k files in the LakeFS branch and user should be able to navigate and open the file using our custom desktop based executable

Hi Selva, lakeFS provides S3 gateway, so any Windows solution to mount S3 buckets should be able to mount lakefs too. I've managed to mount using IntelliJ if it helps.

thanks @Barak Amar. Can I do the same if my cloud provider is Azure?

Yes. The S3 gateway is available regardless of the configured block store.

@Selva take a look at
lakectl local
functionality too. It might have a nicer interface to what you’re trying to achieve. It’s explained in this blog post.
