Hello,
I have recently setup WVD with Windows 10 as well as Windows 7.
While testing out resource redirection, I have seen that it works if connect with Remote Desktop app but not with HTML5 Web client. I mean I can see my local drives if I use remote desktop but not with web client. Is it be design? Official WVD documentation does't really mention the limitations of Web client.

Drive redirection is not supported in the web client. Here's the documentation to see the differences.

@David Belanger: I have also hit the same issue as @Pankaj_Jadhav 

 

Is the lack of drive redirection on the web client by design, or is this a feature that may come at a later point?

There is a user feedback request about functionality to copy and paste files between client and server on the web client:

This was marked as planned in 2018, but there seems to have been no update since, any news?
