Single user using Thin and Thick client

Hello, I have a user that uses a laptop.  At times they also use a thin client.

I want to user to have one id that will not restrict them while using the thick client.  For example, in my GPO I do not allow thin client users to access the C drive.  I do want the user to access the c drive while on the laptop (or the laptops C drive).

Is there a way to make this so the user can have one set of permission while using the laptop and different while using thin client with the same user id?

The user already has access as administrator to local machine.  The problem is RDS GPO's get applied and I cannot access C drive, etc..

Hello Casey,

I have two policies, default domain policy which I have some basic folder redirection and a RDS Policy.

I had loopback enabled within the RDS policy and then I went into the RDS policy security, added the laptop computer and clicked on "deny".

This did not work so I removed loopback, I have not enabled it.

I figured out that I needed to remove the local profile and recreate it and then the laptop was able to access the local c drive.

If I enable loopback that should work, correct?    Per this note does it appear I understand your instructions?

I do agree that I should make a new group, "thick clients" to exclude RDS policy....

Thanks!
