RAS v19 allows achieving an efficient retrieval of files and folders on redirected drivers in comparison to native RDP sessions.
To enable this feature, in RAS Console right-click on an RDSH/AVD/Guest VM > Properties > Agent Settings tab > check Enable drive redirection cache, click OK and then apply the settings in RAS Console.
From version 19.3 onward, Drive redirection cache is included in the AVD Standard Feature Set.
An existing session won't be affected, only new sessions will utilize the functionality. Very first file retrieval process in session may take a bit longer than usual since the information has to be cached.
- Feature available only for Parallels Client for Windows, Mac client and AVD
- Changes made on the client-side (in a remote session) requires manual refresh (press F5 key) in the redirected folder on the server-side.
- The redirected folders have no special icons (for pictures, music, documents, etc.)
