How can you exchange data between USB storage devices on the Thin Client with an active RDP connection?

  • Entry
  • Associated product(s)

If there are multiple USB sticks connected to a Thin Client with an RDP connection established, it is not possible to copy or move files directly from one USB stick to another.

This behavior applies for the RDP connection between a Thin Client and the operating systems below:
Windows XP SP3
Windows 2003
Windows 2008

Store the files first on the Windows Desktop. Then you can move or copy the files to the USB sticks.
