Cannot see host drives in Hyper-V vm when using RDP.

    Cannot see host drives in Hyper-V vm when using RDP.

    Not a big deal as easy enough to get round issue but I discovered something odd when using rdp.

    I have a vm and in enhanced mode, it is sett up to show host drives in the VM and this works fine.

    If I remote connect to Host using Splashtop, I can see the Host drives in the Hyper-V vm.

    However, if I remote connect to Host using RDP, the Hyper-V vm does not display the Host drives.

    I can see them indirectly as networks shares but any idea why I cannot see them directly (tclient) when using RDP?

    EDIT: I have just realised same happens if you just RDP from Host to VM i.e. not remotely connecting to Host. I am guessing that RDP probably only connects as a basic session? Having said that I can still hear sound ok, so it cannot be that simple.

    As an aside, when I use a network share in vm to copy data from/to host rather than the enhanced session drives (tclient) as above, it is nearly 10 times faster. It has always been faster by 2 or 3 times for me but with FCU, network shares blitz almost as fast as copying just on host now .
