When I RDP'ed to some of the servers my local drives being mapped to the server.  Other servers don't.  Why is that and where is the option to disable that.
Thanks.

One option to configure that is on the RDP client - options - local resources- local devices and resources - more...

The other are the settings on the server - http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc770631.aspx

It should be enabled on both sides.
