Windows Server 2012 - RDS Server - map user's local C:\ drive in remote session

We are running Windows Server 2012 R2 - Remote desktop services.  We use the server mainly for RemoteApp publications.  I have a couple users that logon to the RDP server as they have separate applications they need to run on the server.  I would like to map their C:\ drive within their session so they can save their work to their local pc.

Thank you,

   I see Overview, Servers, Collections, (list of collections)

Another Question, can I assign a specific drive letter to map their local C:\ drive within their RDP session?
Thank you,

Can you Make it more clear
trinity2007Author Commented:
Our users want to see their local c:\ drive (from their computer) mapped as a drive in their RDP session.  For example, they RDP into the server and Drive (Z:) is mapped to their local C:\ drive.

My first answer is the answer
trinity2007Author Commented:
I can see the drive connected; but the user would like to see a drive letter associated to this.
Thanks,
