Hello,

I am running Citrix session on my PC , I can see my local PC drive C$ and mapped G: in my citrix desktop.

I want to attach .doc file from G drive to my Outlook running on Local PC.
Is there is any way to do it without copying it to C$?

Hi,

Is the Citrix server on a local LAN or are you accessing it through Citrix Web Interface?

Thanks

Hi,

Without fully knowing you're environment, If you cannot access the server directly, unfortunatly there is no way to get direct access to the file on your G drive. You will have to copy the file to your C$ or alternatively run Outlook within Citrix.

Thanks

C$ equals G: when connected to Citrix !
When you compose a mail-message, and browse your G: drive, you are actually browsing your local harddrive of your desktop...

I don't quite understand the issue - you should browse G:\USERS\<your_local_username>\Documents to check your local documents - that way you can attach them to any mail within Citrix.

I don't really see why you should copy it to C$...
Unless a share is mapped as G: but then your local C: drive would remap to the next available letter... or else I don't quite understand what you want to do...

Could you please be specific little more about the environment setup?
Can you confirm whether the G: drive is a mapped drive in your citrix desktop or is it your OS drive of the citrix desktop?
i assume that the c$ that you have mentioned is your local PC drive
