How to create F drive in the first image
I was post this as preview, When you connect your local drive with RDP/VPS then F drive will be automatically created. (F Drive = Your local disk drive)

it's possible to access your PC Disk/Pen Drive/Printer on Linux VPS?
Maybe possible but I did not use Linux VPS however RDP is also available for Linux server.(I never use RDP and always use SSH so I am not sure that you can do this with Linux)


What are the next pictures after Step 4? :D
After Step 4 you will get a warning like.
