Copy Files Using Windows Remote Desktop

Here’s a great tip for copying files from your desktop to EC2 (or any remote Windows server). Posted on Amazon’s EC2 forum by P. Hebert:

“Before you connect to the instance, wander through the tabs and find check the box under “Local drives and resources” for your C: drive. Once connected to the instance, open Windows Explorer and in the address bar, type “tsclientc” (without quotes). your local PC’s C: drive will (slowly) open up in Explorer and you can drag&drop.”

“This doesn’t require any additional ports to be opened up; it goes over the RDP connection you already using for remote desktop. ”
