[THIN] Re: Hiding Client Drive A: in Terminal Server 2003

Joe

Thanks, but I just tried that again and it works to "hide" the drives
that are on the specific Windows Server.  The local user's PC's drives
still show up.  We need the C: to show but not the A:.

Must be something else...

I don't think it matters if it's a redirected drive, local drive or
network drive mapping.... If the policies are set for a particular drive
letter, they can't see or access it.

Won't that just restrict the server's drives?  We do that already with a
GPO...

I'm really trying to stop access to the local user's A: drive.

Use a GPO (or gpedit.msc) and define both the Hide and Prevent policies
under Users\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Windows
Explorer\

We're bringing up a few terminal servers running Windows 2003 Server and
I'm trying to stop all the applications from looking at the user's A:
drive.  They need access to their C: drive, but the A: drive ends up on
their list in Explorer and tries to be read every time Office displays
the File Save dialog.

Anyone have any ideas?  I've tried deleting it during logon script with
a NET USE \\TSCLIENT\A /DELETE but it doesn't seem to work.

Thanks,
Bill
