Local Drives

Hi,

I'm using Horizon Client 4.4.0 build-5171611

I noticed when I connect to machine, it sees my local drives. I never enabled this setting on purpose, nor do I know how it was enabled. I don't have any Settings, just Options menu above, which doesn't show much, so I don't have any idea how to make changes.

How can I disable the access to my local drives from machine to which I connected via Horizon?

this path you would find it in remote computer or in master image

however for the end user or  client create the below key

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies\VMware, Inc.\VMware VDM\Client]

“DisableSharing”=”true”

I have path like:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\VMware, Inc.\VMware VDM\Client , but not under Policies. I added String with DisableSharing with value=true both ways. Still no effect. Is there some newer Trial version of Horizon where I can just skip this feature during installation? Its annoying.
