We need a secure way for clients to remote into our network and gain access to delegated files on our 2K8 R2 Active Directory File Server.  Is Terminal Services via a mapped local drive the best approach?

Just to be more clear:

We need to be able to allow clients to securely download files.
We need to do this without compromising the security of our AD environment.  It would also be great to give them the ability to upload files as well.  I've heard SSH might be an option but I really hope Active Directory has a built-in functionality.

Did you consider using VPN access for those users? They can securely access your resources uing Remote Desktop Clients.
You can use standard VPN mode (PPTP) or if you need more secure way (L2TP). The second one is based on certificates.
