End user perspective
Virtual Desktop end users can have access to several mapped drives. These drives includes an FTPs accessible team share, a Company File Share and their Home drive (for their documents, desktop, etc…) . All of these mapped drives reference back to a central storage layer on either a storage services (such as Azure NetApp Files) or on a file server VM.
Depending on the configuration the user may of may not have the H: or F: drives exposed, they may only see their Desktop, Documents, etc… folders. Additionally, different Drive letters are occasionally set by the VDS administrator at deployment.
VDS allows admins to edit security groups and folder permissions, all from within the VDS portal.
Security groups are managed by clicking: Workspaces > Tenant Name > Users & Groups > under the Groups Section
Create new security groups
Add/Remove users to the groups

Folder Permissions are managed by clicking: Workspaces > Tenant Name > Manage (in the Folders section).
