I was recently accessing Quantum GIS, installed on a Windows 2003 server, using a remote desktop connection in Windows XP. To access all the local and network drives attached to my computer, I set up a disk from remote desktop connection.

However Quantum GIS couldn't access any of the drives set up in this way. They simply did not appear in the list of drives when going to open files. Only the local drives and those mapped directly on Windows Sever 2003 were accessible.

Is this still true? I cannot replicate it.

I don't know because I've not had a chance to test the latest version at work, where the issue occurred. I may get a moment in the coming weeks to test this but in the mean time if anyone else can confirm this to be the case or not, please do.
