If you connect via RDP, you just have to click on the Options if your Remote Desktop Connection tool before you connect. This expands the tool so you can change settings. Click on the "Local Resources" tab, then in the Local Devices and Resources click on "More", and then check the local drives on your PC you want to use. After that connect, and then under the Network of your remote Desktop you'll see "TSCLIENT". If you click on that you'll see the drives you have checked, and then you can copy to and from those drives. Just makes you don't close the connection while the copying is in process, or it would stop copying.

tried this method.
it's too slow. only 20kb/sec.
Let me know if there is an alternative method.
Opened a new question
The speed is dependent on the bandwidth, both sides in particular need high upload speeds, and that on most DSL connections is much slower than the Download speed. You'd have similar speeds whatever method you use.
