Cannot Copy & Paste files to remote desktop - Insteads 'New Folder' appears

Hi,

I have just got myself a remote VPS running Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard 64 bit. I am connecting to it using Microsoft RDC with Windows 7 Professional. The RDC has the clipboard option enabled in the local resources setting options.

When I try to copy & paste files from my local machine using right click copy - right click paste into remote desktop - then the file does not paste. Instead a new folder appears on the remote desktop.

I also have a remote VPS running Windows Server 2008 Standard (not R2) 32 bit. When using the above method to copy & paste I have no problems at all.

Is there something different between these two editions that is preventing this action? If so, does anyone know a way around it? Is there a simple setting somewhere?

Thanks

TT

Other way you can use your local resources:
mstsc ->Options -> Local Resource -> More and there you have drives.

Hi,

Thanks. These are not exactly the same problem. I have clipboard enabled and I do not see any error. When I paste to the remote machine it pastes an empty folder - not the file I wanted.

I already use the shared resources and can move files around this way. But It's not as convenient as using copy/paste.

Thanks

ok, thanks for your answer;)
Did you try copy folders by cmd? (xcopy or robocopy)? Maybe here you can see any error.
