Terminal service and disk access
I have a Win 2000 server running as RAS Terminal Service. All accesses
are via dial up over analog modem. Most of the time the connected
speed is approx. 36K. I have no problem connecting and running
applications in the server from clients running Win XP and Win '98.
However when some applications need to access the client's hard disk
it is problematic. Sometime it works prefectly OK and other it just
cannot locate the local disk. I have tried mapping the local disk with
an absolute drive ID (ie Z:) and addressing the drive as
\\computername\localdriveID\folder\. Sometime it works and sometime it
doesn't. Printing to client's printer works OK. What can be the
problem. Is it the connecting speed? Is there anyway to improve the
speed and stability of connecting the client's disk?. Thanks.

I'm sorry, but this forum can't help you.
You see, the comp.windows.x forum is for the discussion of the X network
protocol, and the graphical windowing environments that use it. This
forum has nothing to do with Microsoft Windows except perhaps discussing
X implementations on that platform.
Your question has nothing to do with X, and probably should be asked in
one of the comp.os.ms-windows.* newsgroups instead.
