Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I'm logging into a Windows 2003 system from a Windows 7 workstation using Remote Desktop. I'm aiming to try and copy some files to the server from the client. In the 'local resources' section of the RDC, I've got all the drives ticked so it should be sharing those drives with the remote server.

However, when I log in, none of these shares get mapped, and if I navigate to \\tsclient, I just get a blank listing.

What's wrong here? What do I need to enable to allow this functionality to work?

I've found RDP sometimes just does that, no reason, no idea why, check for firewalls I guess otherwise reboot your client, if that's no good it might need a server reboot. –  Chopper3 Apr 1 '11 at 10:19

Is there any kind of restrictions on the server that you are remoting into?

Check: Start > Run > tscc.msc

Right click on RDP-Tcp and go to Properties > Client Settings

Make sure that Drive Mapping doesn't have a check in it.
