    Remind Me: Access to specific folders on C Drive

    Can anyone remind me the specific GPO setting for allowing access to certain directories on the C drive? We block access to the C drive but exam pupils need read/write/modify access to a certain directory for the WJEC SecureAssess software to run. We are using Windows 7 Ent.

    I've created the GPO and altered settings - I've tried where I thought it was - but it hasn't changed anything.

    Appreciated

    You can set the permissions for a folder/file on the local drive by using

    Computer Config\Policies\Windows Settings\Security Settings\File System\

    Hope that helps!

    Alternatively it might need a path rule setting to unrestricted under Software Restriction Policies if it's trying to execute something and failing. Might well be both.
