Default Terminal Server Client Drive mapping not working

Using Windows 2008 I can see that on the RDP configuration that Drive mapping is 'not' disabled , hence it should be allowed.

I test this and ensure I have 'Drives' checked so that they should redirect to another drive, but they don't!

Has anyone had a similar issue out there??

There are 4 places to check to make sure that setting is enabled:

1. On the RDP client

2. On the user account properties

3. On the RDP protocol on the server

4. Group Policy

Thanks for the repsonses

I've checked in all those places and still it doesn't redirect the client drive. I've ruled out Group policy by Blocking any inheritance on the server and account.

I'm thinking it's something on the OS that is missing possibly registry. I am testing this from 2008 server to 2008 server (works on another environment I support).

Have you tried unchecking the option, running an RDP session, close session and then check the option when you start a new session?
