Shortcuts Under RDP session Stop Working

I have a client that connects to a server through RDP. Once connected I created shortcuts on his RDP desktop to an external drive on his local computer. The local resources are mapped in the RDP settings and it shows fine in My Computer on RDP. I create a shortcut to it and place it on the RDP desktop and it works, but as soon as he logs off and back on the shortcut does not work and I have to recreate it. Does anyone know of a solution to this issue to keep the shortcuts working even after logging back on?

1. is other data on desktop is available after logoff.
2. see if any policy is applied for RDP short cut and that is replacing it.

You can try adding "%windir%\explorer.exe" at the beginning of 'target' field of the shortcut, for example:
%windir%\explorer.exe "\\tsclient\Your External Drive Letter"
