Speaking of limiting drive access, is there a way to HIDE mapped drives from 
users?  I map a network applications drive that simply doesn't need to show up 
in My Computer.  It needs to be there but simply be "hidden." Anyone?

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.

group 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?
