Cannot paste to 2012 desktop when connected with RDp

New to server 2012.  I used to be able to RDP into a 2008 R2 server with my Win 7 desktop and copy and paste both directions between machines.  Now with server 2012 I can no longer seem to do this.  On the Win 7 machine I went RDP show options, Local resources, more, and checked drives.  No luck.  Is their an easy solution or is this just something that is no longer available in the "new improved" version  of Server?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

It still works. Why you checked "drives" though is odd. You want to check "clipboard." That's where cutting and pasting happens. Also note that the administrator can block the use of the clipboard via group policy or in the RDS deployment properties in server manager. If blocked, checking the box won't have an effect.

Honestly...Why copy files thru RDP... Make sure you have local administrative privileges and open the root drive through NETBIOS using the command: \\<servername or IP for that server>\c$

this will open a directory right to the root C drive and you can copy all the files you need to that way.
