Windows 10 - Remote Desktop Client - cannot get local drives to persist for an .RDP file

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.

Leigh, did you save the file again after editing?

Thanks, McKnife.

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