    Prevent user login if the writable is in use on another computer

    Select this option to ensure that the user does not log in to a computer to which their Writable Volume is not present. Using a desktop without an attached Writable Volume may result in the user working on a machine where the data is not saved to the Writable Volume.

    Limit the attachment of users writables to specific computers

    Select this setting for users who do not need to access their Writable Volume on all computers that they use. Also, some users might need separate Writable Volumes that are only attached to specific computers.

    For example, a user that has two Writable Volumes, one limited to Win7-Dev and another limited to Win7-Test. When the user logs in to the computer named Win7-Dev-021, the user gets the first volume. When the user logs in to Win7-Testing, the user gets the second volume. If the user logs in to Win2012R2, no Writable Volume is attached.


    Enter a description for the Writable Volume.
