You can upload .zip files to the Writable Volumes VMDKs and the files become available to the user the next time the user logs in to the desktop.

About this task

You provide the files in a ZIP format. You cannot change any user-installed applications that are already in the Writable Volumes.


Once a Writable Volume is updated, you cannot reverse the updates. You must update again separately to make any further changes.


  • 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 or any location that is accessible to the App Volumes Manager.


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