RDP will not copy an Paste to Windos 2008

I seems that just recently we have lost the ability to cut and paste within a RDP session from the destop to the server. This has suddenly stopped working

Copy to Clipboard was checked but I had to also check on Drives then it started working

Check which ports are open to the outside world. Helps make sure that your firewall rules are working as intended.

Just thought I'd ask about the clipboard first, sometimes it isn't checked...

Then check GPO:
Computer Configuration \ Administrative Templates \ Windows Components \Remote Desktop Services \ Remote Desktop Session Hosts \ Device and Resource Redirection \ Do not allow clipboard redirection

Unfortunately that did not correct the problem. The PASTE option is still greyed out

Ok back up a bit, this worked previously yes?
Any new policies applied to workstations/server in the last while?

Which direction are you working? I mean you are on workstation and RDP'ing to server and can't copy/paste?

Ok, although it may not be possible have you

1) Rebooted the server?
2) Rebooted the client?

Any other server's you can RDP to? To try to figure out whether the issue is client related, or server related?

Also test by RDP'ing to another win7 machine for example, the more testing you do the closer you'll get to the root cause...
