Let me clarify something. Are you saying you've disabled drive mapping in
the user's account, TS Config or via Group Policy, and still want to be able
to transfer files to/from the client.
You can run a login script that manually deletes the drive mappings to the
client computer, which will remove the drives from their "My Computer" and
net use drive listings, but will still allow file transfer. You'd also have
to lock down My Network Places & the Map Network Drives in the Explorer
Shell, so they can't "easily" get the mappings back.
You MUST still have Drive Mapping Enabled, and the use must still have Local
Disk Drives checked on ther RDP Client. It is the combination of these two
(server setting + client setting) that allows file transfer.
