Client drive mapping

You can use client drive mapping and client folder redirection to make client-side files accessible on the host-side session. The comparison between client drive mapping and client folder redirection is as follows:

If Then
you enable only client drive mapping on the host (VDA), client-side full volumes are automatically mapped to the sessions under the ctxmnt subdirectory in the home directory.
you enable client folder redirection on the host (VDA) and the user configures it on the user device (client), the portion of the local volume specified by the user is redirected.

Enable client drive mapping

To enable client drive mapping, set the Client drive redirection policy to Allowed in Citrix Studio. For more information about the policy, see File Redirection policy settings.

Enable client folder redirection and specify folders to redirect

To enable client folder redirection, run the following command on the VDA:

/opt/Citrix/VDA/bin/ctxreg create -k "HKLM\Software\Citrix\Client Folder Redirection" -t "REG_DWORD" -v "CFROnlyModeAvailable" -d "0x00000001" --force

To specify which folders to redirect from the client to the host-side session, complete the following steps on the user device:

  1. Ensure that the latest version of Citrix Workspace app is installed.
  2. From the Citrix Workspace app installation directory, start CtxCFRUI.exe.
  3. Choose the Custom radio button and add, edit, or remove folders.
  4. Disconnect and reconnect your sessions for the setting to take effect.
