I am trying to Hide Drive letters A,b,c,d, and E.
I created a new adm file and imported that into my GPO. When I look at the GPO setting for Hide these specified drives in My Computer I do not have a listing for abcde just the default drive letters.
I am putting the adm file in Windows/inf
Am I missing something. Here is my ADM file I used which I just modified based on one I found

Yes this is right, your re-inventing the wheel here you can do this by editing the system.adm file, there are two keys in here NoViewDrive and NoDrive you just need to edit the Hex number that represents the drives you can or can't see. Then Insert your labels for the key in the bottom section of the adm file.
Take a look at this adm it was given to us by a support co, I don't think they'll mind it's all content that you can get on technet. Make sure you're using GPMC on an XP or Server 2003 box i'm not certain that 2008 will use it. (I think it will I can see the settings on my 2008 server.
It seems it has changed in Vista and server 2008. No longer adm files its admx and adml
I found a helpful article Pretty much what was said except I needed to modify 2 files and create a CentralStore for the files. http://www.datacrash.net/howtos/howt...r-2008%29.html
