nonpersistent desktop

A non-persistent desktop is a virtual desktop that does not maintain user data, personalized settings, or any other changes made by the end user.

A non-persistent desktop is a virtual desktop that does not maintain user data, personalized settings, or any other changes made by the end user. Each time the end user logs on, they get a fresh, generic virtual desktop image.

The primary benefit of this type of virtual desktop, compared to a persistent desktop which retains end user settings, is that it requires less storage in a Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) environment.
