Use the sync app on virtual desktops

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

  • Virtual desktops that persist between sessions.
  • Non-persistent virtual desktops that use Windows Virtual Desktop.
  • Non-persistent virtual desktops that have FSLogix Apps 2.8 or later, FSLogix Office Container, and a Microsoft 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 2019 (supports VHDX)
    • Windows Server 2016 (supports VHDX)
    • Windows Server 2012 R2 (supports VHDX)
    • Windows Server 2008 R2 (supports VHD)

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


The OneDrive sync app is not supported in remote app scenarios.
