You can upload files to the Writable Volumes VMDKs and the files are added to the Writable Volumes the next time the user logs in to the desktop. You provide the files in a ZIP format. You cannot change any of the user-installed applications on Writable Volumes.


After a Writable Volume is updated, you cannot reverse the updates. To make changes, use an additional update to overwrite the files.


  • Create a ZIP file that contains the files that you want to upload. The ZIP file must be smaller than 5 MB.

  • Place the file at the root of the Writable Volumes.


  1. From the App Volumes Manager console, select Volumes > Writables > Update Writables.
  2. Browse and select the packaged file.
  3. Click Upload.
