Change the location of /tmp in a Windows install of Git Bash

In /etc/fstab, comment out any existing lines defining /tmp, and add this one:

C:/myTemp /tmp ntfs auto

The ntfs part doesnt matter because the system figures out the filesystem on its own. The auto part tells the system to mount it automatically when you start your shell. There are other options you might want to specify, like case sensitivity. For more information about that file, see:

After editing that file, youll need to open a new shell.
