When I open an application, I cannot locate files or folders on network drives…..What should I do?

When you launch an application using the virtualization site, you can locate network files by expanding the Computer folder and locate the needed drive letter and associated folder to access your existing files.

When I open an application and try to open a file located in the desktop folder, the folder appears to be empty.

When you launch an application using the virtualization site, the desktop folder is typically empty as the folder is part of your virtual user profile. To access files on your local computer desktop, expand the Computer folder and locate the folder titled “Local Disk (C: on Your Computer Name)”….Once connected to your local C:, you will find your local files in the folders you have stored them in.
