Copy Large File(>2G) to Azure VM

When you copy a file large than 2 G, it will fail with the default RD connection.

You need to turn on drive redirection to allow you see local drives.

Open the downloaded .rdp file from a text editor and add this line to the end of the file and save the file.


You can double click the file to remote in to your Azure VM with your credentials and you should be able to copy and paste large files from your local drives to your VM.
