  • GPO to prevent Floppy, CDs, and USB

    Deal folks,

    I need an effective solution to prevent domain users from accessing their USB, Floppy, and CDs.
    I tried as a previous solution an administrative template to do so, but after applying the template to Active Directory, the template name is shown but without any settings on it.

    I have got the administrative template for the forum.

    Please I need this help...this is serious...

    I'm runnnig Windows 2003 Server Standard Edition with Active Directory installed on it, and users are running windows XP Professional with Secrvice Pack 2.

    I had this very same problem, with a different .adm file.

    In the GPO Editor you are using, select View>Filtering and uncheck the "Only show policy settings that can be fully managed" checkbox. You will no be able to see the new settings in the right hand pane.
    From WindowsDevCentre.
    I don't know anything about (you or your) computers.
    Research/test for yourself when listening to free advice.
