What is the correct way to map drives within an xpmode pc?

As you know, xpmode has integration available. I read that when you map drives WITHIN xpmode, you map the drives as you would any other xp pc.

On the xpmode settings side (now I am in Windows 7), I only have the clipboard integrated. And Windows 7 is mapping drives the correct way.

Another admin told me to integrate the drives in the xpmode settings and also map the drives in within the xpmode pc...this seems like double work.

All pcs are part of a domain.

What do you think?

You can assign a drive letter in XP to the drives on your real Windows 7 system by using Explorer’s Map Network Drive menu in the copy of Explorer in the XP virtual system. The drives on the Windows 7 machine are listed under "Microsoft Terminal Services", not under "Microsoft Windows Network" like standard network drives.
