Is there a way for users to decide which drives they will redirect into a RemoteApp?

When using standard RDP, users may decide which drives they redirect.
When using RemoteApps hosted on server 2016 or 2019, from a website like https://myts.mydom.com/rdweb I don't see a way for them to decide the same. Do you?

It is a requirement of our client to have this option, since they would like to expose only uncritical drives to the host but still be able to redirect drives at all.

    Hello @MTG

    You can specify which drives to redirect to your remote host from remote desktop connection.

    Also you may need to configure the policy value on the Session host
    Computer Configuration >> Administrative Templates >> Windows Components >> Remote Desktop Services >> Remote Desktop Session Host >> Device and Resource Redirection >> "Do not allow drive redirection" to "Disabled".
