Hi Experts,

I've got an .RDP file that I use regularly.

When I do a Right click | Edit I can select local drives to use for the remote connection.
I select 2 drives, then Connect - and those 2 drives are available on the remote Windows Server.

But the chosen 2 drives do not persist when I next click on the .RDP file to Connect, or when I do a Right click | Edit.

Regards,
Leigh

is your RDP file read only now? please right click the file and choose Properties to check.

Leigh, did you save the file again after editing?

Thanks, McKnife.

Yes, after editing I needed to Save the file via the General tab.
