Hi James,


Thanks again. But having persistent (static) desktop shouldn't they be able to install their own software if they need and should be available only for them correct? 


So, if I update the vdisk and when they reboot I do not have to worry about their D drive getting over written? I am kind of confused here at this point, then why would they need more storage as it is streaming from one vdisk?


Please, accept my ignorance here.

any data onto the D drive will persist with an image update - the preference for this sort of "personal vDisk style" activity would probably be App Layering with user Layers. What you are suggesting should work most of the time - but there may be oddities


If you have persistent assigned desktops, then logically only the user assigned that desktop will have access - but if you change who has access, the D drive is machine based not user :)
