Enable and configure client folder redirection

Oct 21, 2013
For client folder redirection to be enabled and configured, you enable it on the server and the user, on the user device, specifies the folders to be redirected. The user application to specify the client folder options is installed as part of the version of the Citrix Receiver supplied with this release.
Important: Client folder redirection is supported on Windows Desktop Machines only.
