When I use Remote Desktop connection and try to copy a file to the computer I'm working on, when I click the "network" then "client" it won't display the local drives.

How do I fix this?

It should be mapped under "my computer" in local drives..
check this, if you don't see the drives please check event viewer for errors
related the rdp connection..

Before logging into the RDP session, click Options at the bottom, Resource Tab, Check printers. Click the More button and check drives.
