The simplest way would be to disable it in the RDP connection
Administrative tools -> terminal services configuration -> connections -> right click the connection RDP-TCP - > properties -> client settings tab -> disable the following tick boxes.

This will do it for everybody If you want to be more specific about which users and groups to disable for then use a group or local policy:

This gives information on group policies and how to lock down a terminal server

In Terminal Server Configuration - rdp-tcp properties.

The GPO settings should also work on the full rdp client connections.

Computer Configuration - Administrative templates - Windows
Components - Terminal Services - Client/Server data redirection
"Do not allow client printer redirection"
"Do not allow LPT port redirection"
"Do not allow drive redirection"
