CAUTION: Be careful of application settings that write to the C drive, which resides in flash
memory in particular, those applications which by default write cache files to the C drive on the
local system. If you must write to a local drive, change the application settings to use the Z drive.
The default configuration settings mentioned in Managing Users and Groups with User Accounts
minimize writing to the C drive for factory-installed applications.
Drive Z is the on-board volatile memory (Dell Wyse RAMDisk) of the thin client. It is recommended that
you do not use this drive to save data that you want to retain.
For RAMDisk configuration information, see Dell Wyse RAMDisk.
Drive C and Flash
Drive C is the on-board non-volatile flash memory. It is recommended that you avoid writing to drive C.
Writing to drive C reduces the free disk space. If the free disk space on C drive is reduced by 90%, the thin
client will become unstable.
The File Based Write Filter (if enabled) protects the flash from damage and presents an error message if
the cache is overwritten. However, if this message occurs you will be unable to flush files of the File
Based Write Filter cache and any thin client configuration changes still in cache will be lost. Items that are
written to the File Based Write Filter cache will be disabled if the File Based Write Filter is OFF during
normal operations include:
• Created connections
• Delete/edit connections
Using the Net and Tracert Utilities
Net and Tracert utilities are available for administrative use for example, to determine the route taken by
