    we have several remove terminal server environments set up.
    Our setups normally consist of a DC and terminal server hosted in a datacenter.

    we often have requests from users to be able to easily trasnfer files from their local computer to the remote terminal server.

    For example, this may be to get files from a pen drive, or a CD, or a camera etc.

    I understand that there is an option to link local drives to the terminal server, and you can specify that all future connected drives be connected.

    However, in my experience this isn’t always reliable, and sometimes the drive becomes disconnected and this does not work.

    We have thought about using dropbox, and in fact currently have one user with this facility so they can transfer from their comptuer to their profile via dropbox account.

    However, I have been previously advised at Petri forums that dropbox isnt really an enterprise solution, and of course enabling it for all users in the company would be a potential problem as they could all upload up to 2GB of data (or whatever the limit is).

    Ideally I would like a single shared folder accessible via a share to the terminal server, and then user folders within that, and for each local user to have access to that shared space from their local computer.

    What would be the best solution for this?
