  Disabling USB Storage With Group Policy
Subject:   Disable only user access not admin?

Hi. I loaded the *.adm on my WinXP system and everything appears as it should in the group policy editor. I placed the custom policy under Computer Configuration, not User Configuration. But still when I "enable" the "Disable floppy" it doesn't work. I can still use the floppy drive. And I tried it with all the other drives as well. This template does work with XP doesn't it? I don't know much about group policies, is there some other setting I need to fix?


Also, I am wondering does this template disable the drives completely, I mean for all users? I want the admin to still be able to use those drives. If this template won't do that, does anyone know of something (other than purchased software) that will do the job? Thanks for your help.
