OPENFOAM 1st tutorial (cavity)

OPENFOAM 1st tutorial (cavity)

OPENFOAM 1st tutorial (cavity)

I am trying to run my first tutorial with openfoam about the cavities, but I have to many doubts and morever the code does not work. This openfoam version is running in windows 10.

This is my code:

C:\Program Files (x86)\ESI\OpenFOAM\1606>"C:\Program Files (x86)\ESI\OpenFOAM\1606\Windows\Scripts\of_start_c ontainer.exe" -Arguments "C:\Program Files\Docker Toolbox\;C:\Program Files\Git\bin"
Starting "default"...
Machine "default" is already running.
[ofuser@default ~]$ mkdir -p $FOAM_RUN
[ofuser@default ~]$ cp -r $FOAM_TUTORIALS $FOAM_RUN
[ofuser@default ~]$ cd $FOAM_RUN/tutorials/incompressible/icoFoam/cavity/cavity
[ofuser@default cavity]$ ls
0 constant system
[ofuser@default cavity]$ cd constant
[ofuser@default constant]$ ls
[ofuser@default constant]$ cd polyMesh
bash: cd: polyMesh: No such file or directory

Now my questions are:

1) Where can I find this folders (tutorials/incompressible/icoFoam/cavity/cavity)on my computer? (I already tried to search it obviously)
2) Where can I find the polymesh file?
3)Why Openfoam cannot find polymesh file?

Thank you in advance
