You can disable an assigned Writable Volume.

When you disable a Writable Volume, and the user does not have any other volumes on the datastore, the user will not have any volume attached.

A new Writable Volume will not be created to replace a disabled Writable Volume unless you have also deleted the volume from the datastore. In such a case, a new volume is created.


Ensure that the Writable Volume you want to disable is in the Enabled status.


  1. From the App Volumes Manager, go to INVENTORY > Writables.
  2. Select a Writable Volume and click Disable.
  3. On the Confirm Disable window, click Disable.
    The status of the Writable Volume is Disabled.
