  • Disabling USB Disk / Writing to USB

    I have been reading article from http://www.petri.com/disk_management.htm
    and trying to implement the Disable USB Disks with GPO and Disable Writing
    to USB Disks with GPO but it seems it didnt work on my part. I have copied
    ADM to all of my Windows 2000 Servers and tried inserting USB drives but
    still I can see them and I can write thru them. Anyone already inplemented
    this thru GPO?

    I have read on : http://support.microsoft.com/kb/555324. Have tried it and
    its not working. I have enable and disable the DIsable USB policy but still
    I can see the USB drive on Windows XP Prof PC. Btw, I am using Windows 2000
    Domain, and as seen on the KB, it is for Windows 2003.

          Cant get what you mean. Is this the best practice (thru registry editing) in doing this restrictions?

              Yes and it is only applicable for newly installed USB Disk. Hope you might help.
