Known Issues

  • Writable Volumes created with profile-based templates on Windows 10 versions before 1803 may exhibit Start Menu or search-related issues after using the same volume on Windows 10 versions 1803 or later.

  • When using Microsoft Outlook Cached Exchange Mode with a UIA-only type Writable Volume and no profile persistence solution such as UEM or roaming profiles, a new .ost cache file is created in the user’s volume upon each login.

  • When many users are logging into their desktops simultaneously, Writable Volumes may not get created for a few users and they may not be able to log in to a desktop.
    Note: This issue does not occur if the users already have an existing Writable Volume.

    Workaround: The users must log in again or have an administrator pre-create the Writable Volume for the user.

  • A Writable Volume move or copy operation might fail when bulk operations are performed on many volumes.

    Workaround: Retry the move or copy operation.

  • Multiple duplicate Writables are seen after upgrading from App Volumes 2.13.2 to App Volumes 2.17.1.

    Workaround: See the Knowledge Base article 67482.
