Roam OneDrive & Office 365 data with non-persistent VDI environments using Liquidware ProfileUnity

I’ve recently been looking at ProfileUnity, specifically in regard to roaming OneDrive in a non-persistent Horizon View desktop pool.

I setup ProfileUnity in a lab environment to test this out.  Using a mounted vhd on a mapped drive this works very nicely and the below video shows a demo of it in action.

Microsoft have introduced files on-demand on win10 releases starting with 1709 (Fall Creators update).  This can be controlled with a GPO which will drastically reduce storage capacity requirements if implemented.  Makes using it in non persistent VDI a whole lot more viable now IMO.
