Terminal Services settings in registry

When I orginally setup our Windows 2003 terminal server long ago, I believe that I disabled things such as printer redirection and clipboard in the registry of the server. Now that I want to reverse these changes, I can't seem to find out how and where to do this?

I looked in the domain group policy for the terminal server as well as the local group policy on the TS. There are no settings there. I also looked in the connection file that I give to users - clipboard and printer redirection are enabled.

Can someone give me support on how to reverse these registry settings?

   "DisableDriveRedirection"=dword:00000001
   "DisableClipboardRedirection"=dword:00000001
   "DisablePrinterRedirection"=dword:00000001

So, I've added these dwords. Should the change be immediate for current users or does it apply to new users from the default profile?
