Local Client Access on Citrix 6.0

I have a user on Citrx XenServer 6.0 when prompted set his local drive to read only access and never ask again.  Now he wants to have full control over his local hard drive from Citrix.  Is there a way to override or ease option so I can give him full control?  He is running Windows 7 locally.

I have not verified this article I wrote against XenApp 6 but give it a shot.

It should at least point you in the right direction.

Do you have Folders set to show hidden files and system files/folders?

Yes, I am showing hidden files and system files.  I searched the hard drive, the file does not exist.

Does the folder path exist?

Yes, but there is no webica.ini.  I tried creating one, but it did not work.  I removed Citrix, deleted all application folders and removed Citrix from the registry under software on both local machine and current user.  I got the prompt to access the local drive, I selected Full Control, but still I can not write to the local client.  This is very frustrating.

My friend JoHarder is going to have to chime in on this one.  I just checked on all three of my Win7 boxes and the file exists on all three.

What client version are you using?

12.1 is available here: http://www.citrix.com/English/ss/downloads/details.asp?downloadId=2304987&productId=186&c1=sot2755

12.1.44 to fix issues with IE9 is here: http://support.citrix.com/article/CTX126653

I am using IE8 and I am running the 12.1 client.

Do you have local drives turned off on the ICA Listener or via a Citrix Policy or by using the icaclient.adm file?

No this his computer specific.  If he logs in from any other computer he can save to the client c without any problems and none of my other users are having problems.

Dang it!  That is what I was looking for.  One little problem left.  The user can now save to any subfolder on the c: drive but he can not save into the root of c:.  Any ideas what might be causing that?

Yes, that is what I did.  Still no root of c:, I really appreciate the help.  I will make him manage as is, but if there is a solution, I would like to find it.
Carl Webster

You can change the permissions on the root of C but I would NOT advise doing so.  Permissions flow down.  You cange the root of the drive, you change everything on the drive.  Not worth it.  And why should a user be needing to put ANYTHING in the root of any drive on a SERVER!!!
