If you are looking for storing your configurations and run time files across your sessions, or make files available even after your computer restarts, you need to set the persistent home directory settings in MobaXterm. Let me explain how to set it .

In this example, I am using MobaXterm Portable version on Microsoft Windows 10.
  • Open MobaXterm
  • Got to MobaXterm Settings menu
  • In settings pop-up window, under General tab, set home and root(/)
  • Persistent Home Directory: Chose a folder in your Windows machine that MobaXterm use as HOME directory
  • This will be available in your MobaXterm command line as /home/mobaxterm
  • Persistent root Directory: Chose a folder in your Windows machine that MobaXterm use as ROOT directory
  • This will be available in your MobaXterm command line as /
After these settings are done, you would require to close all MobaXterm windows and start it to make this change in effect.
