Thanks for responding guys.  I used the "Prevent access to drives" which
sort-of works.

What version of Office? Some elderly apps just ignore these settings.

(Actually, no, just apps that use rubbishly old components. Sage <Grrrr>)

Robert-

Which policy exactly are you using here? There are two related ones. One
is "Hide Drives." and the other is "Prevent access to drives."

Hey all,

We are running a Citrix environment with MS office available.  We've
hidden the C: drive from the Windows Explorer, but people can still go
into Word, Excel to save files to the c:\ drive.  Anyone ever had to
remove this?

 

Thanks
