Windows Sync for hosted shared desktop

Hi, for ShareFile Sync, CTX207680 says “Cannot be installed on more than one Windows user profile at a time”. I also don’t see the Windows Server 2016 OS in system requirements. Does this mean it’s not supported for Windows Server 2016 OS (hosted shared desktop) XenApp & XenDesktop environment? What is normally used for a XenApp & XenDesktop hosted shared desktop environment running Windows Server 2016 OS, where at any time there can be more than 1 Citrix session (user) on the same VDA machine?

Hi,
ShareFile DriveMapper (https://www.citrix.com/downloads/sharefile/clients-and-plug-ins/sharefile-drive-mapper.html) is our recommended solution for VDA environments. 

ShareFile DriveMapper integrates into Windows explorer experience seamlessly to make all the files on ShareFile cloud appear into native windows explorer and at the same time doesn't consume disk space but download contents only when needed. This is essential for Virtual Desktop sessions where there is no dedicated desktop and So we would want to keep the content to be saved with user's profile to minimum.

Please reach out to our support team in case you have any questions regarding configuration and deployment of ShareFile DriveMapper in VDA environment.
