    Students changing home drive name

    Hi,

    I wondering if anyone had a solution for our students changing the name of their home drive using the organize menu? They are changing it to some nice names!changing_name.png

    Our students don't see the shares they have mapped. We give them shortcuts to the drives they need when they logon [Home folder drive letter, Resources share etc] There are no drives visible to them for them tom re-name.

    Do you achieve this using Group Policy Preferences?

    Yes I think it is GPP. Sorry to sound so vague but it was some time ago since I set it up and I haven't looked at it since. I will check tomorrow and get back.
