Can you enable local drives in a remote powershell session

by Aug 14, 2012


When using a remote desktop connection on the destination machine you have avaialble to you the drives from the source machine so you can simply copy a file from source to destination.

If you fire up powershell within that session you are also able to access drives from the source machine using a command such as:

NewPSDrive Name localC PSProvider FileSystem root \tsclientc
GetChildItem localC:

Using PowerShell 3 / server 2012 for the first time…

If I start up a remote powershell session to a server via Server Manager is it still possible to get access to local drives or do you need to "upload files" by some means to the destination machine which would be a real pain ….

Many Thanks,
