FSLogix + Dropbox RRS feed

  • Question

  • Has anyone found a way to have FSLogix coexist with Dropbox? It works so long as you are set to local only, but if you use the online option, you cannot open any files. I think Dropbox is using a similar filter driver technology that causes the application to download an online-only copy when you try to open a cloud-stored file. Since the default location of the folder is in the user folder, I guess this conflicts with FSLogix virtualizing that directory.

    We are using this in a corporate non-persistent VDI environment, and Dropbox offers no way to change that folder location prior to user sign-in (and the user must manually redirect that folder). I tried to use the redirections.xml, but Dropbox simply creates another folder in the user folder when it gets redirected to the local copy.
