Remote Desktop client can't see the local drive

Postby guest » Tue Aug 26, 2014 12:21 pm

We are running Windows 2008 R2 for remote access. One client running Windows 7 can’t see his computer local drive even we have setup Local Resource correctly. It is not group policy issue because other users of the group don’t have this problem and the user doesn’t have this problem if he use different computer. It must be some settings in his computer, but what?

To edit the .rdp file

Make sure the value of redirectposdevices equals 1.

If these steps doesn’t fix the issue, I suggest we rename the default.rdp as default.rdp.old and reconnect RD with Drive item checked on in Local device and resource. Please make sure the .rdp extensions were shown up before renaming.

Try this:

1. Open the Remote Desktop Connection on my local machine, click on the Local Resources tab, select the More button at the bottom, UNCHECK ALL local devices and resources and then click the OK button.
2. Click the General tab and then click the Save button.
3. Click the Connect button, sign on to the remote computer and then disconnect.
4. Repeat step 1 again except this time CHECK the local resources you want (I just checked my local disk drives) and save the changes.
5. Connect to the remote computer again and your local drives should appear.
