Permanently Add Local Hard Drive to RDC

We run SBS 2008 and use Remote Web Workplace to connect remotely to our server at work.  RWW launches RDC without our being able to check Local Disk in the Local Resources tab before it connects us to the server.  I would like to permanently turn on Local Disk so it will be enabled when we connect through RWW.  Any ideas?

Is your SSL certificate third party or a self-issued one? If self-issued pick up a very inexpensive GoDaddy certificate and install it (intermediates first, then finish the wizard on SBS).

Then, place the RWA/RWW page into IE's Trusted Sites list.

Close and reopen IE then log on and connect. You should be allowed to connect the local system's drives.

MPECSInc - I have a Godaddy certificate.  I added RWW page to IE's trusted site list and nothing.  Perhaps you do not understand.  When one connects through RWW, he/she never gets to see the RDC logon screen to change the Local Disk check box.  Anyway, JBond2010's solution worked.
