I am working for a company that has set me up with remote access to a virtual desktop, that I connect to via the Microsoft remote desktop application. Note, I am not using the remote desktop connection that has been around for years, but rather the newer remote desktop app.

For various reasons, they have provisioned three separate virtual machines to connect to. The first 2 do not have access to my local machine directory, but the most recent one is has a list of all my directories, including my mapped directories on my NAS. This is clearly a setup oversight on the part of the person who provisioned this latest VM. I could get him to reconfigure it. But I would like to know if there is anything I can do, short of running remote desktop from a VM on my local machine, that will prevent access to my local machine from the remote VM?
