What would be the best way to use WVD but without saving the users profiles? We want to either eliminate the ability for a user to be able to save anything to their profile or remove the profile after they logout. Just looking for the best option.

 

Thanks,

Scott

@swindmiller Without knowing all of the reasons behind the use case one possible solution would be using mandatory profiles: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/client-management/mandatory-user-profile

Thanks for the reply, trying to minimize cost in Azure. In RDS now all the users login as "guests" so the profiles are not saved. This can get messy so we were looking for a better solution. 

We though of using FSLogix but would need to minimize the amount that would be stored in the profiles to keep the cost down.

 

Thanks,

Scott
