Hello everyone, I have a client whos trying to reach her own USB stick on her own computer through Remote Web Workplace. She has a perfect remote desktop and the printer is redirected perfectly, but the USB stick is not.

Server OS : Small Business Server 2008 Premium
Client OS : Windows XP (in home)
Client OS : on workplace

NOTE! It is a remote desktop, but she's only allowed to tick Printer and Clipboard, it's not like the regular remote desktop where there are added options like Drives and so forth.

Thanks in advance.
