Cannot Copy & Paste files to remote desktop - Insteads 'New Folder' appears
Posted on 2012-03-27
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?
