  Disabling USB Storage With Group Policy
Subject:   Disable the write functionality for USB storage

Using this .adm file I can successfully disable USB Storage devices. But is there a way to prevent write access to them without disabling the read functionality.


We have a number of kiosk machines that allow users to display powerpoint presentations etc. We'd like to still allow this but prevent people from taking files off the machines.


Thanks
