I am using Remote Desktop in Ubuntu 2012.10 to connect to Windows Server 2012.

I configured /home/nico/myshare in the Share folder field, last item below:

enter image description here

Once connected, where to access myshare on the Windows side?

I am sure myshare is used somehow, because when I remove it Remote Desktop crashes.

In the screenshot you provided the Share Folder is disabled which likely means it cannot be enabled. –  Ramhound Feb 6 '13 at 11:01
@Ramhound: That was an image from the web. I replaced with an actual screenshot I just took. –  Nicolas Raoul Feb 6 '13 at 11:09
Have you setup a share folder on Windows? –  Ramhound Feb 6 '13 at 12:08
I just want to access the myshare folder from Windows... so I guess I don't need to setup ashare folder on Windows, right? Or do you have any documentation proving otherwise? That could be an answer. –  Nicolas Raoul Feb 7 '13 at 2:31

Upgrade Remmina. I'd suggest using the PPA. Documentation on doing that is here. The stock version of Remmina in 14.04 is pretty well back and your should find Server 2012 share folder functionality is working in the newer versions where it isn't in the non-PPA version.

To install it, just copy and paste the following three lines on a terminal window

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:remmina-ppa-team/remmina-next sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install remmina remmina-plugin-rdp
