you can take away the (advanced) List Folder / Read Data permission, but ensure you leave on Traverse Folder / Execute File at the root of the drive applied onto this folder only, the re-add List Folder / Read Data permissions on the root of the drive, but apply it to subfolders and files... if the users or applications need it. Then users won't be able to browse it, but I don't know of a way to hide it completely. Note, users will be able. Be very careful using this kind of approach (similar to last email) you will need to ensure that all of permissions currently existing are comprehended. And TEST!!!

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? -----Original Message----- From: gptalk-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx <gptalk-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx> To: gptalk@xxxxxxxxxxxxx <gptalk@xxxxxxxxxxxxx> Sent: Wed Sep 20 09:56:00 2006 Subject: [gptalk] Re: drive access 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 have told the 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?
