Ability to redirect data (machine or user locations) to one or more custom containers
Ability to redirect specific directories to one or more specific VHDX containers. Taking the existing functionality of O365 and Profile containers but empowering administrators to define exactly which paths should be redirected and to which custom containers. Paths might be global paths such as C:\Program Data\ and would need to allow for per user abstraction/virtualisation of those directories as App Masking redirection rules provide currently.
This is being tracked under discrete User Voice items “Allow redirected folders to be stored in a separate container” and “Allow redirection of data, not in the profile, to an existing container.”

iteam 2 was very usefull to redirect some application cache like outlook custom application plugin. Redirect folder and some registry part would make perfect tools for stateless vdi

Yes as Jim mentions, we are already able to achieve item 1 with the current capabilities. I believe the voted up item I have raised here outlines item 2 as you have described...

Given that all entitlements exist once you are licensed for FSLogix, once you have two, all you need to do would create App Masking redirection rules to get 1 as well.

Item 2 please
item 2 please Doug.
The O365 container is disposable so not suitable for LOB "data" as CCDLocations are not backed up.
The Profile container is unwieldy in that the ntuser.dat is hardcoded and LOB data needs to be kept desperately.
So a third bespoke container that is configurable in isolation from the other containers. The ability to configure different storage for example also.

Hi Doug, I think item 2 would give the highest level of control. i.e custom containers + user and global paths redirected into it. I think this user voice outlines that use case? Do you require us to vote up another item?
We are considering this as two separate items identified in User Voice.
Item 1 = Place data, not contained in the profile, into an existing container.
item 2 = Allow discretion of containers other than the current Profile Container and Office Container.
As these will be considered for implementation separately, if one or both are implemented one will precede the other and one may be implemented and the other not. Please add votes to the appropriate user voice per the above information.
Bespoke and custom container in addition to existing O365 & Profile containers please.
