Instant Clone desktops don't support persistent disks. Users can use network shares or App Volumes to store persistent user data.  https://docs.vmware.com/en/VMware-Horizon-7/7.2/com.vmware.horizon.virtual.desktops.doc/GUID-D7C0150...

I know that Instant Clones does not support persistent disk! My question is whether it is possible on VMware roadmap to implement persistent disk to instant clones?

Its unlikely to get a forward looking response from vmware anyone can say one way or the other. Why not look at fslogix, I think most Microsoft licenses cover its use for free.

Persistent disks are deprecated in Horizon 8 (2006) and will be removed in a future version.  There is new guidance published today on migrating from legacy technologies such as Persistent Disk.  I have also provided a script to migrate both Profile and non-Profile data from persistent disks as part of the migration guidance.
