ProfileUnity VHD, error creating on Encrypted/Compressed share

Product: ProfileUnity-FlexApp

Product Version:  6.5.x

Updated: November 2, 2016





Cannot create a VHD file on an encrypted or compressed share with ProfileUnity.


“The requested operation could not be completed due to a virtual disk system limitation. On NTFS, virtual hard disk files must be uncompressed and unencrypted. On ReFS, virtual hard disk files must not have the integrity bit set.”




Use an un-encrypted and uncompressed share to store VHDs. Per Microsoft, use of encrypted or compressed volumes is not supported for VHDs.
