As preparation for migration of my users to VDI I would like to recreate OST and PST files on network location without losing local copies on physical desktops



One of the way to approach is to create symlinks.


Possible Resolution(s):

Open ProfileUnity Console, Edit your configuration, go to: ApplicationLauncher.jpg

"Add Application Launcher Rule"

  • Filespec: cmd
  • Arguments: /C mklink /D c:\users\%username%\appdata\local\microsoft\outlook \\server\share\%username%\Outlook
  • Timing: After Configuration Execution
  • Run Asynchronously: (Selected)
  • Schedule: Everyday



Note: "\\server\share\%username%\Outlook" - This is the network path where the Outlook files will be stored.
