How do you transfer files between local/remote computers over terminal services?

Remote Desktop Connection (RDC) does allow you to copy files to/from local/remote drives. To enable this, follow these steps -
  • Launch the RDC client
  • Click the “Options” button
  • Click on the “Local Resources” tab
  • Click on “More”
  • In the “Local drives and resources” popup, choose the local drives that you want to have access to on the remote computer.
  • Now proceed with the RDC as you normally do
  • Launch Windows Explorer on the remote computer and you will find your local drives listed as available drives on the remote computer; now you can copy folders and files in either direction to your heart’s content!
