    Re: Viglen Classlink7

    Yes I have tried these already. Don't work. I want staff to be able to use USB's (?) but not students. Looking for other answers. Please excuse any typos.

    You can modify the system.adm file to hide or prevent access to any combination of drive letters.

    This MS article give details how, but this may not be possible with Viglen

    I take it that you have denied access to the control panel?

    Yes, we have done that, but they still get through when they use the route described earlier in this thread. I am now looking at using Active Directory to deny them access to the files used in running the Portable Media Devices applet in Control Panel.

    Re: Viglen Classlink7

    OK so following my last entry, what are the properties of the Portable Media Devices shortcut (applet)? If I know what files are called maybe I can block student access to USB memory sticks that way. Please don't say that I can't do it because Windows Explorer should not be blocked. I don't want to block Explorer, just access to the USBs for students.

    Re: Viglen Classlink7

    I have disabled the navigation pane in Windows Explorer. This way when students click the Folders button the navigation pane is empty. This solves the problem, but is not as elegant as I would like and it is in force for students and staff. I would be VERY interested in looking at your solution.

    Re: Viglen Classlink7

    Hopefully this should sort the problem...

    In Active Directory.

    Right click on 'Students' and select 'properties'
    goto 'group policy'
    Highlight 'students' in object links and then click edit
    This will open group policy object editor.
    Under 'user configuration' select 'administrative templates'
    select 'viglen' and then 'windows components'
    In the 'windows explorer' select the 'Hide these specified drives in My computer'

    drive code for usb should show '2044'

    To stop the little .... using usb use the drive code '66191356'

    The only thing you need to be sure about is that what drives you want them to see... this will allow a, b, r, s, t.

    Ps very good idea to write down all chances made!!

    Hope this is of help.

    Re: Viglen Classlink7

    I can't use this solution because I am limiting what students see and what connections they have. I don't want them to be able to see the drives you mentioned in your reply. Thanks anyway.
