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 don't see the same options when opening Remote Desktop Services:
   I see Overview, Servers, Collections, (list of collections)
Can you screenshot your rdp
Sure, attached file.  This is the Server Manager console for Server 2012.
When I select Remote Desktop Services>then I see the menu options for:  Overview, Servers, Collections
No i am talking about Remote Desktop on clients pc
Remote Desktop connection
Got it.  Works!  Thank you.....
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
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
I can see the drive connected; but the user would like to see a drive letter associated to this.
Thank you
