Your container is running on a system. Now, this system has no way of communicating with the container as according to the container concepts, its independent wrt resources. This makes a need to set paths to communicating with the system. This is done in the mapping section of the Add Container screen. The host path is (generally) the shares that you want to give the container access to.
