Ben-

Assuming these are not Vista-based systems (Vista provides this kind of
restriction capability out of the box in GP) then you can use GP Preferences
to restrict access to storage devices like these.

Subject: [gptalk] Prevent access to USB disks and portable media drives

 

I have a requirement by a customer to prevent users from being able to use
USB disks on their workstations as well as preventing access to any floppy
drives, CD/DVD drives, etc.  However, there will be a couple privileged
users who will need to retain access to these devices.

 

I found a great article with a pre-built ADM template, however it is a
computer based policy, and I require a user based policy.

 

Is anyone aware of a way to accomplish these using user-based policies?

 

Thanks,

~Ben
