Right, so I am now re-setting up our network after having a little bit of a chatastrophic failure. I took the opportunity to make a change so that we don't have to have a share for every single pupil in the school as it is a long winded process.
Instead, I now have a DFS root with a link to a share on a nas box eg:
and then under that link I have folders for each year and then a folder for each pupil.
In the Active Directory I have mapped the home drive to W: which points directly at that person's folder (ie \\root\domain\files\03\pupilname).
I have a variety of options enabled in the group policy which disables the display of anything in My Network Places (and this itself is not displayed to the pupil on the desktop or in my computer).
Now, the problem arises in Office. When a user goes to open a file, their home folder is listed under the network path in the drop down box at the top, rather than the W: drive. This means that they can select the folder on each level above their own, and are able to navigate to any share...
Is there any way of getting rid of that box? or at least making it not show My Network Places?
