Solving Microsoft Outlook (.OST) issues by combing VMware UEM and App Volumes

The long outstanding challenge of Microsoft Outlook *.ost files within Windows 7/8/10 floating desktops. Using VMware User Environment Management (UEM) and App Volumes together can overcome this challenge. Microsoft never supported or recommended keeping .ost files on File Shares and with O365 into equation the .ost file could be enormous sizes and would be unable to provide optimal end-user experience like you would be running from your PC devices.

App Volumes


Using this technique, we can now quickly re-direct the .ost files to writable volumes and continue offering floating desktops to our end-users

There is also a VMware UEM video which demonstrates this steps in more details here – (Thanks to Pim Vandeis from the UEM team)
