Ok did the hide drives policy and it worked to hide the drive however if you
open my computer and manually type in C:\ it will still let you go to the
root of c and create a folder and save to it.  Anyone know how to stop this?

Ok. Sorry, I was thinking you were using the Hide Drives in My Computer
policy. Prevent access does exactly as it says--it prevents access. You may
want to use the Hide Drives policy instead. That should allow access even if
C: is hidden.

There is a policy under "User Configuration/Administrative Templates/Windows
Components/Windows Explorer" called "Prevent Access to Drives from My
Computer" that, when enabled, will disallow access to several different
combinations of the A, B, C and D drives or even all drives. 
I did this and it will not allow access to mydocuments.  I want usrs to be
able to access my documents but not be able to creatfolders or anything else
on the root of c

I'm a little confused, since hiding drives should not prevent access to My
Documents. Are you saying that if they, for example, click on the My
Documents icon on the desktop that it errors out?

policy not to allow saving of files to c however if you creat a new folder
you can save to that folder.  Anyone know how to stop this?
