    Hide C And D drives From Pupils

    Hi. Here we go again, next problem !.

    W2K server ... W2k workstations.

    On the workstation hard drives I have Two partitions C ..& .. D
    I do not want the pupils to see C or D
    I have enabled on the server GP :-

    Root.
    Managed.
    pupil ou.

    User config..
    Win.. comp..
    Win.. Explorer.
    Hide these drives in my computer. = C
    prevent access to drives = C

    Ok that hides C but I cannot see how to hide D also.

    Help please ... ( D partition was used for my ghosting image ).



    Michael.

    I use hidecalc

    Just run the program and you'll see the various options - startup script, Group Policy template or registry hack.

    Easy one this:

    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/q231289/

    That document helped me when I needed to do it (for a 2000 Server/XP Client domain- although checking the article it is valid for your setup too).
