Drive Mapping in Citrix


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$?

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.



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

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
