    Remote Desktop Connection has a feature that allows you to map a local drive to the remote computer so that you can access it directly within the remote Windows machine. What I'd like to do is the reverse- have a drive from the Windows machine appear in the OS X Finder so that I can use local programs to access the files directly. I doubt this is possible but thought I'd ask just in case. Unfortunately, RDC is the only way I am able to access to the drive I'm trying to map- it is on a network that has other methods (S/FTP, SSH, etc.) blocked and I don't have access to change settings like that. Thanks in advance and let me know if I can clarify what I'm asking!
