No comments
For Windows administrators, Remote Desktop Connection is one the most valuable tool for their day to day tasks. It is a built-in tool in later Windows version that enable access to remote computers. Typically when sharing local drives for the remote computer to access, we use Windows sharing method. But such method would open the shared drive to other users in the same network as well. A better method is to forward these drives to be shared from the Remote Desktop Connection tool itself. To do that, just click the Options on the tool's main form. This will expand the Remote Desktop Connection tool. Next step is to click the Local Resources tab and then click More button. From the popup dialog, expand Drives from the available list and then tick each drive you would like to be shared as shown below.

You can also forward removable drives such as USB stick. You can share either before you perform the remote connection or after it. Just tick "Drives that I plug in later" option if you choose the latter.
