    Possibly, maybe I'm over reacting. But I wourld rather not allow students to trawl around the hard drive and other drives. Plus it opens up the possibility of saving work in random places that won't be specific to the user, won't be backed up and that we will have to chase down.

    Also it just grates a little that we don't have any other programs that cause this problem.

    This is the best approach. I'd like to know what are the best practices for setting file permissions for students windows drive, especially for terminal servers. Clearly removing write perms should be done - but what about all the read/execute within the windows partition ?
