I have a terminal server 2008 that I am using hp thin clients on. I am tring to get the thin clients to where you can use flash drives on them. Currently when you put a flash drive in you can see it in My Computer, but when you try to access it I get the error. "\tsclientfileshard disk2 is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administratorof this server to find out if you have access permissions. The file exists." Even logged in as administrator I get the same error. I have checked group policy and the only drive that I have restricted with domain policy is the c drive. How can I correct this error?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

As you are using the PCs as dumb terminals, ie the OS image is running on the server, you will get this error message because it thinks you want to access the USB port located on the server, not the thin client.

This is a problem when trying to use the USB ports on a thin client, because they are only available to the local OS, not the virtual OS image running on the server.

To my knowledge, I don’t think there is a way to do it. A clients system is virtual OS and it was chosen to stop copying of data files for safety reasons.
