I have a server running as a virtual machine. I need to copy some data from it to an external hard drive. I read this online but it doesnt tell me what all I need to do to get it to work. I did the changes on the RDP connection to the server and the hard drive is attached to my PC How can I easily transfer the data. This is what I did:
For a temporary USB connection take advantage of remote desktop client features. For example, using Microsoft’s Remote Desktop Connection (RDP) tool to a Windows VM you have options to allow the guest to see the USB devices connected to your desktop or notebook. By clicking the Options button from the main interface and then the Local Resources tab you can configure a pass through connection to USB devices.
But when I get logged on with RDP and go to My Computer......how do I get it to recognize the external drive on my PC?
