I'm using Remote desktop metro app to connect to my office computer and I really like it but I can't copy files from the remote machine to my computer as I usually do with Windows RDC. Is this a limitation of the metro app? Is there a way to do it without use the old RDC Windows client?

Do you have the latest client? There was an update today or yesterday. – user3463 Oct 27 '12 at 21:21
I did not have it but after update is the same. I can copy/paste between remote and local computer. – David Moreno García Oct 28 '12 at 0:00
@DavidMorenoGarcía - If you can copy and paste what is the problem? This is likely simply a limitation of the Modern UI application at this time. – Ramhound Oct 28 '12 at 2:46
Sorry, that was a typo. I can't* copy. – David Moreno García Oct 28 '12 at 16:57
