Add the following to one of your policy templates or create a text file
from it and call it drives.adm... there is a spreadsheet on thethin.net
http://thethin.net/hidedrive.xls <http://thethin.net/hidedrive.xls>
that will help you figure out the numbers to use.

  POLICY !!HideDrives
  ; This policy is will show only specified drives
  ; on the client machine.  The registry key that this policy
  ; effects uses a decimal number which corresponds to a 26 bit
  ; binary string, with each bit representing a drive letter:
  ; 11111111111111111111111111
  ; The above configuration corresponds to 67108863d and will
  ; hide all drives.  If you wanted to hide the C: drive you would make 
  ; the 3rd lowest bit a 0 and then convert the binary string to
  ; Note: it is not necessary to create an option to show all drives
  ; because clearing the check box will delete the "NoDrives" entry
  ; entirely, and therefore, all drives will be automatically shown.
  ; If you want to configure this policy to show a different combination
  ; of drives, simply create the desired binary string, convert to
  ; and add a new entry to the ITEMLIST.

When I log on as a user, and run tweak ui, the option to hide the drives
is no longer displayed.
Any ideas?

Did you log on as a user (not admin) and then set tweak ui to do what
you want?

I installed the tweak ui version 2.1 and when I remove the drives it
only occurs for the administrator account that a log in. All other users
that log on still see the drive.
Any ideas?
