Use the sync client on virtual desktops

For all supported operating systems, the OneDrive sync client supports:

The sync client also supports non-persistent environments that have FSLogix Apps 2.8 or later, FSLogix Office 365 Container, and a Microsoft 365 or Office 365 subscription for all of the following operating systems:

  • Windows 10, 32 or 64-bit (supports VHDX files)
  • Windows 7, 32 or 64-bit (supports VHD files)
  • Windows Server 2016 R2 or Windows Server 2012 R2 (both support VHDX)
  • Windows Server 2008 R2 (supports VHD)

Using the OneDrive sync client with non-persistent environments requires that you install the sync client per machine.


For Windows Server, the SMB network file sharing protocol is also required.
