In this video I’m going to show you how to share your local drives with remote desktop connection.

The first step is go down to the Start button and navigate to Remote Desktop Connection. It’s under Accessories. And here you are, Remote Desktop Connection. If you are using a hosted version of the software, this is how you’re going to connect to the database.

If you want to share your local drives, you’re going to have to click on the Show Options button. When you do so you can access this Local Resources tab and click on the More button. Here we can see that we have check boxes next to Smart Cards, Ports, Drives, and Other Support Plug and Pay Devices. So we can either place a check mark next to Drives or we can expand the Drive selection and check just the drives that we want to share.

Once you connect to the database your settings will have taken an affect and you will not have to do this again unless you’re accessing the database from a different computer.
