To Enable web client file transfer

Local drive redirection

Set the following RDP property to configure local drive redirection:

  • drivestoredirect:s:* enables redirection of all disk drives.
  • drivestoredirect:s: disables local drive redirection.

You can also select specific drives using a semicolon-delimited list, such as drivestoredirect:s:C:;E:;.

To enable web client file transfer, set drivestoredirect:s:*. If you set any other value for this RDP property, web client file transfer will be disabled.
