How to Connect a Drive Recognize in Remote Desktop Session (MSTSC)

Over here I have a situation, I can access to the remote session (Terminal Services) to a server, but I can’t access it physically.  I need to copy some of the files into the server for certain application update.  I can’t use the \\servername\<drive> either from my station to copy from my drive to the server. 

Here’s the solution that I would like to share.

  • Run the Remote Desktop Session (or type ‘mstsc’ from RUN box)
  • Don’t connect it yet.
  • Click on the “Local Resources” tab


  • In the Local devices and resources click More


  • Select the drive that you want to attach, then click OK.


  • Key in the computer name and username.
  • Click “Connect”.
  • Then you can see the extra drive in the remote server.

Hope this guide helps you.
