How to get local HDD (C and/or D) and local CDROM mapped on Citrix XenApp 6

I need a way to create a map for the local computer desktop of the C drive, or in some case D drive of our W7 or XP workstations so that it is visible when using Apps on our Citrux XenApp server.

Specifically, I would want the map to go to a \\<local computername>\%userprofile%\desktop\transfer folder, and have it mapped as "T".

The catch here, is that some of my local computers use D as their Windows partition, so we need to accommodate those too.

Appreciate any suggestions.

have you tried mapping it from either the terminal server login on AD
or used GPO to map said drive?
within citrix you should use \\client\c\%userneme%\desktop
\\client\ allways points to the local - client workstation while using Citrix.
try opening \\client\c within published explorer or the open dialog from notepad

So I assume that there is no way to have a pass through UNC variable that just goes to the default windows partition on the local PC client? (remember - some of my computers do not have a local C HDD)
Ok, we are trying to map a drive letter to the local desktop using the following: \\client\c$\documents and setttings\%username%\desktop from our citrix session, and we are getting an error. If I copy and paste that path into a RUN command it resolves perfectly....what is the trick to mapping a driver letter down to the local PC desktop in citrix?
