I have a SBS 2008 server with an attached Win XP client. I can connect from home on a Windows 7 PC to the XP PC via remote workkplace, no certificate errors.
But I cannot access any RDP client mapped drives on my home computer.
When I connect I get warning message and can check "use client printer" and "client clipboard" but no checkbox for "client drives".

Not following you exactly.  If you can RWW to your station inside the lan, you can work from there exactly as if you were sitting at the keyboard in the office.  No need to map anything from the remote station to anything inside the firewall at the SBS site.

I want to copy/move files between my home computer and the office PC. With normal RDP l can reach my drives on the home computer as \\tsclient\C. I see no option to allow this.

when you select connect to my computer at work, select the computer, then click the options link below.  there should be a "connect the drives" or its equilivent.

Also, I can recommend drop box.  www.dropbox.com

I recall with SBS2003 there was an option below to "connect  drives", but now with SBS2008 the menu is different. I can select to which of my office computer I want to connect to, I can make it default, but I see no option of connecting drives.
