    Re: Hide custom drive

    What OS are your DCs running, and what is your domain FL?

    Anyway, this link explains how to, through a custom ADM file:

        Nice v-2nas and Ossian...

        I like that GPDrivesOptions.. itz seem like nice utility..

        I configured GPDrivesOptions but when I try to add it to Adminstrators template it gave me error 64.
        I delete it and recreate it a couple of times.. but I still have issue.

        EDIT: It looks like admin.adm got corrupted.. is there away to recreate the system.adm? I dont have a backup..
        well the good news is it's on the test environment

        Thanks,
        HN

          Ik looks like if you did not removed the "system" template from user configuration in the gpo - (??)

          Does the backed-up "system" template file "c:\windows\inf\system.adm.bak" still exist?
