Unable to access local drives through terminal services

Hi,

I have a strange problem with terminal services. My clients log on locally and then connect to a Windows 2003 terminal server. They used to be able to see their local drives when conected to the terminal server but now instead of the icons in 'my computer' showing as the local drives they show as the unknown file type icon. I have tried unticking the 'use local drives' option on the RDP client and re-ticking it but this doesn't make any difference. The users have been able to access there local drives before and when they click on this unknown file type icon nothing happens???

Any ideas??

Thanks
