I am using a linux server to run scripts and manage a database. I get to this using a SSH through PuTTY. On my windows machine there is a mapped drive to a directory (/mapped_drive/) on this server (X:) with all of my files on.
I.e. in windows the file structure is like this:
In linux it is like this:
I edit my files on this X:\ drive through a text editor in windows and then I run these scripts through the command line on the linux server.
I have many data files on my Y:\ drive on my windows machine that I would like to access when I am using the server. It is not viable for me to copy these over due to the sheer amount and size of them.
I am using python programs to analyse these data files. I am wondering how I can access these files using python if that is possible. If it is not possible, is there a way I can access the files on my Y:\ drive through PuTTY?
