We connect to the server remotely with XP Remote Desktop... previously we had 2003 version and had no problem...the "local resources are all checked off, but I am not sure if the person who is maintaining the server has not provided the proper permissions? Is there a setting that would let you connect but then not access your local drives?

* I can see tsclient but for example previously \\tsclient\c would get me to the C drive, now I get an error

Haven't played with 2008 yet but it sounds like you might have read but not modify access.
EDIT:
Disregard...hadn't read your second post when I clicked save.

thanks, while connected I looked every where I could for Permissions and everything was full control, no mention of read only.

if you can think like it was 2003, what might you look for...think about what might have been done wrong during setup of the server...I don't know much about it myself because someone else set it up...it is hard to search for this issue because you get results for the server side Remote desktop.
