The first thing to do is to access the registry editor as administrators, for this we look for "regedit" in the Start search box, right-click on the editor and select "Open as administrator":
TechnoWikis advises you to create a backup copy of the registries or a system restore point in case of errors.
Now we must go to the following route:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER \ SOFTWARE \ Policies \ Microsoft \ Windows
We right click on the Windows key and select "New - Key":
We will call this key "RemovableStorageDevices":
We click somewhere free of this new key and select "New - 32-bit DWORD Value"):
We call this DWORD value "AllowRemoteDASD":
We right click on it and select "Modify", in the field "Value information" we assign the number 1. We click OK to apply the changes.
With this process we have allowed access to removable storage in Windows 10 when using a remote session..
