  1. We usually have a network share for UPD. This share usually contains some other things for the RDS environment such as PowerShell scripts used within the RDS platform, installation packages etc. I wonder if you store this on the SOFS aswell? Historically, SOFS was NOT for "general files storage" but only for VHDX and SQL clusters. Any change in that?
