    Google Chrome policies

    I'm about to rollout Chrome (being force by our vle!) and I've setup the administrative templates to get proxy settings etc all working. That part works fine, but theres a problem wher Chrome allows students to browse the C: drive (or any other mapped drive!) - now, although they NTFS permissions should protect the system I'm not keen on this at all.

    Is there any way to block mapped drive browsing in chrome, with or without administrative templates?

    Within "Block access to a list of URL's" policy block file://*

    Ahh thanks - I'd seen that but I'd mistakenly thought that those lists were more designed for use when proxy filtering wasn't available.

    Works a treat and also stops access to SMB shares as well.
