Windows 7: tsclient drives not showing up when using mstsc

21 Aug 2013   #1

Windows 7 Enterprise SP1 (x86)
tsclient drives not showing up when using mstsc

When I login to my work computer from home using mstsc.exe I have my local drives checked under Local Devices and resources, but when I try to access \\tsclient\c$ it get an invalid path error. At work we were recently migrated from Windows XP to 7. Under XP, I was able to see all my local drives through \\tsclient\ . Is there something special I need to do or ask someone at work to do in order get my local drives to work through mstsc in windows 7?

Try a workaround - enter the IP Address, for ex. \\\c$. See if you're able to get the same results.
