When you detach a View Composer persistent disk from a linked-clone desktop, the disk is stored and the linked clone is deleted. By detaching a persistent disk, you can store and reuse user-specific information with another desktop.


In View Administrator, click Inventory > Persistent disks.


Select the persistent disk to detach.


Click Detach.


Choose where to store the persistent disk.



Use current datastore

Store the persistent disk on the datastore where it is currently located.

Move to the following datastore

Select a new datastore on which to store the persistent disk. Click Browse, click the down arrow, and select a new datastore from the Choose a Datastore menu.

The View Composer persistent disk is saved on the datastore. The linked-clone desktop is deleted and does not appear in View Administrator.
