Feature Request: NTFS support

Feature Request: NTFS support

When using USB devices and connecting to a XenApp 6.5 published desktop, if the USB device is using NTFS it won't appear. The thin client event log shows a USB device is connected, but, does not register a file system (a device formatted as FAT shows the device is connected and the file system/drive letter is registered). Tried on an R10 and C10. Telling users they have to copy their data off, reformat the device as FAT32, and copy their data back doesn't go over well. Also, audio CDs don't register as a recognized file system either.

RE: Feature Request: NTFS support

do not support ntfs file either "map" or "redirection"

audio CD is "track" but not file storage, could you try the DVD?

RE: Feature Request: NTFS support

John,

Thanks for the reply and detail of what is currently supported. Our tests were able to confirm the Citrix related items. Currently if a user absolutely has to have NTFS support we put them on XenDesktop. However, we try to limit this b/c the resource/user consumption of XenDesktop compared to XenApp is a killer on our servers. Will look forward to seeing what Wyse can pull off.
