Editing the files in a virtual software layer

You can make the following changes to the files in a layer:

  • Create new folders.

  • Rename and delete folders and files.

  • Copy or move files and folders within a layer, into a layer, or outside a layer.

You cannot overwrite files in a layer. To replace a file, delete or move the original and replace it with the updated file. To edit a file, move the original, update the file, and then replace the original with the updated file.

To edit the files in a virtual software layer

  1. Start the SWV Admin tool.

  2. Click Start > All Programs > Symantec > Workspace > Virtualization > Symantec Workspace Virtualization Admin.

  3. In the SWV Admin tool, double-click the layer.

  4. In the Layer Properties dialog box, click the Files tab.

    The Files tab has two nodes to separate the files in the read-only and writeable sublayers. When you edit the files in a layer, make sure that you make the changes in the correct node.

    Most folders on the Files tab use a name that is a variable.
