When setting up a remote terminal session, there is a tick box that allows the user to bring forward local resources such as printers and drive mappings.  I assume I can disable this in the group policy editor on the application server but I can't figure out where.

Any Ideas?

In Group Policy Management snap-in when editing appropriate policy, under Computer configuration > Administrative templates > Windows components > Terminal services > Client/Server data redirection
you will find two options (which are adequate to your scenario):

1. Do not allow client drive redirection
     which you should set to Disabled as per below explanation from MS:
------------
    Specifies whether to prevent the mapping of client drives in a Terminal Services session (drive redirection).

    By default, Terminal Services maps client drives automatically upon connection. Mapped drives appear in the session  folder tree in Windows Explorer or My Computer in the format <driveletter> on <computername>. You can use this setting to override this behavior.

    If the status is set to Enabled, client drive redirection is not allowed in Terminal Services sessions.

    If the status is set to Disabled, client drive redirection is always allowed.

    If the status is set to Not Configured, client drive redirection is not specified at the Group Policy level. However, an administrator can still disable client drive redirection by using the Terminal Services Configuration tool.
------------

2. Do not allow client printer redirection
        you need to Disable this one too
------------
     Specifies whether to prevent the mapping of client printers in Terminal Services sessions.

     You can use this setting to prevent users from redirecting print jobs from the remote computer to a printer attached to their local (client) computer. By default, Terminal Services allows this client printer mapping.

     If the status is set to Enabled, users cannot redirect print jobs from the remote computer to a local client printer in Terminal Services sessions.

    If the status is set to Disabled, users can redirect print jobs with client printer mapping.

    If the status is set to Not Configured, client printer mapping is not specified at the Group Policy level. However, an administrator can still disable client printer mapping using the Terminal Services Configuration tool.
-------------

If this is not set in domain policy this GPO needs obviously be linked to OU where your client computers are to have effect.
