Is your environment setup as persistent single session or pooled multi-session? Are users being roamed between machines if so what is the roaming profile solution used (FSLogix), how is that configured to handle temp profiles.
Hi, I have similar problem. wvd vm session host with non-installed program in c:\ourapp (the app not need install). Automatically the folder dissapears. Maybe azure vm updates? It's nornal that dissapears folders?
I don't think there will be away to recover the files, unless they exist under: c:\Users\

Without a bit more detail, it almost sounds like the the following setting is configured: "Delete local profile when FSLogix Profile should apply" - but fslogix isn't creating the profile?
In our case, folder deleted or missing was outside fslogix user's profiles folder (c:\users). We had some folders in C:\ (like c:\OurProgram) and automatically dissapears from the wvd host.
Nobody deleted the folder (users didn't have folder permission to delete) just dissapears.
