Hi,

I want to be able to use my local hard drive/local printer while I'm connected through RWW to a SBS2008 environment i.e if possible, map my local hard drive that I use to access RWW website from home and then save stuff on to it, and print things from sbs2008 server directly to my local printer at home.

This was much easier in sbs2003 but now on sbs2008 when I click RWW, only options I get is Printers and clipboard, I have both checked, but that allows me to copy/paste things between machines and shows me Remote printers however I I dont want to make copies of every document to print them, or store them on my Home machine.

The printer component, you need to install your local printer driver into your SBS 2008 because SBS2008 is terminating your local printer

and to enable your local hard drive
follow part of this article that applies to your case.
