I have access to a Remote Desktop running on Windows 2003. I am able to download and upload files from the remote desktop from and to the Internet. But when I download some files in the Remote Desktop and try to copy/paste them to my PC, its not working. Is there any way to make copying files from Remote Desktop to Personal Computer on the fly

You could enable drive sharing in your remote desktop client config. Having done this (and after reconnect), you can use \\tsclient\c  aso. for your client's local drives in Remote Desktop Session.

Well, I found the answer myself. While creating remote desktop connection, go to 'options', 'local resources', 'more' and select the drives that are to be shared in the remote desktop client. then connect to the remote desktop client and on clicking 'My Computer', you will find the selected local drives as 'Network Drives'...anyway thank Qlemo for replying.
