RDP: windows copy-paste from attached drive to remote machine fails??

Hi;

With RDP, windows copy-paste from attached drive to remote machine fails in the middle of copying.

Restarting rdpclip.exe didn't solve the problem.

Please help. Remote machine is W2008, local machine is W7-64 bit
This is the case but no solution..

Instead of using copy and paste use robocopy -- this way if it fails halfway through you can restart it and it will pickup from where it failed 1. start a admin command prompt 2. then use this robocopy command
robocopy \\tsclient\c\foldername d:\foldername /S /XO /XJ /W:1 /R:1 /V /ZB
where \\tsclient\c is the is the RDP attached drive and d:\fodlername is a local drive and fodler
here is a link to better explain robocopy https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc733145.aspx

How large is the file that is being copied?  Does this happen to all file transfers or just large ones?  Also, can you confirm that the user has permissions to write to that location?

It could be a network issue, but more likely something related to permissions.  Just to be sure, are there any dropped packets showing up in a network trace?

Try copying the file from the attached drive to a local drive on the remote machine and then execute the copy/paste.  

Lastly, it's possible that the paste appears to start but doesn't really execute due to permissions or other issues.  If you look at the destination location directly, does the paste actually start?

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Done failed.

How large is the file that is being copied? ~ 6MB (copying fails around 300 KB)

 Just to be sure, are there any dropped packets showing up in a network trace? I will skip this for now.

 is robocopy for client machine or a plugin to install server machine?

Try copy/paste of a small file, <300 KB.  That will tell whether the paste actually starts.  I suspect that the paste really isn't as successful as the UI is leading you to believe.  

Also, please check GPOs and RDP config to be sure that you don't have clipboard, drive, or plug 'n play disabled.  Go to Remote Desktop Session Host Config-->RDP-->Client Settings.  For GPO, check both the computer and user settings under Admin Templates-->Windows Components-->Remote Desktop Servers or run a GPResult.

robocopy is built into both client t and server--just go to a command prompt (start, run, cmd) and type robocopy /?
