You can upload ZIP files to the Writable Volumes VMDKs and update the volume. The uploaded files become available to the user the next time the user logs in to the desktop.

You cannot change any user-installed applications that are already in the Writable Volumes.
Note: After a Writable Volume is updated, you cannot reverse the updates.


  • 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 (2.X) > Writables.
  2. Click Update.
  3. Browse and select the ZIP file.
  4. Click Upload.
