Transcript

In this course, we've covered Azure Virtual Desktop session host disk options as well as the requirements for FSLogix capacity and performance. And we've set up your FSLogix file shares with Active Directory authentication and the proper permissions. We've also protected that file share from local deletes with our soft delete function, and then further protected it with Azure Backup taking daily snapshots.
