Profile Management

Configure active write back

To ensure profile integrity, you can back up files and folders that are modified on the local computer to the user store during a session, before logoff.

If you start a second session (at a second computer, for example), modifications made to a file in the first session are available in the second if it was started before you log off from the first.

  1. Under Profile Management, double-click Active write back.
  2. Select Enabled and click OK.

If Active write back is not configured in Group Policy objects and HDX, the value from the .ini file is used. If this setting is not configured anywhere, Profile Management configures it dynamically. For more information, see Advanced troubleshooting checklist.

For your changes to take effect, run the gpupdate /force command from the command prompt as documented at https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-server/administration/windows-commands/gpupdate.

Note

Active write back for registry entries is disabled by default. You can enable this feature under Profile Management > Active write back Registry when active write back has been enabled. If it is not configured in Group Policy objects and HDX, the value from the .ini file is used.
