The following is what I found with respect to App Vols and physical desktops
Question - What is a non-persistent physical desktop? I know what a NP virtual desktop is, but what is the equivalent for a physical desktop? Is VMware pretty much stating that physical desktops are not supported UNLESS it's a VMware Mirage physical desktop? Just want to get an answer on if actual physical desktops (the kind we're all used to with a physical hard drive, etc) are supported with App Vol (and writables)?
