Restrict User Access

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, I'm new to the forums. I see a lot of great information here and I was hoping that I could get some advice on my current situation.

I would like to restrict users from using their a: and d: (any media drive).

I want to do this with permissions so that my techs and admins can use the drives if they need to, however specific users cannot.

Is this as simple as just creating a share on the workstation A$ and setting up permissions? If so, do I need to remove the everyone group and then add the users I want?

I hope these questions aren't too n00b for everyone =/

Thank you in advance for any solutions and advice.

Do you have a Windows 2000 domain setup??

If so then create a GPO to this effect then apply it to the OU's that you want.

Just note that your techs must UNHIDE drives once they're about to use 'em .... so if you're using Domain wide policy, you'll have some issues with this one ...
