  • Hello ,

    Please follow the same to achieve  the goal.

    Hiding/Preventing Access to Drives

    You can use Group Policy settings to hide and restrict access to drives on the RD Session Host server. By enabling these settings you can ensure that users do not inadvertently access data stored on other drives, or delete or damage programs or other critical system files on drive C.

    The following settings are located in the Group Policy Management Console under User Configuration\Policies\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Windows Explorer:

    • Hide these specified drives in My Computer. You can remove the icons for specified drives from a user’s My Computer folder by enabling this setting and using the drop-down list to select the drives you would like to hide. However, this setting does not restrict access to these drives.
    • Prevent access to drives from My Computer. Enable this setting to prevent users from accessing the chosen combination of drives. Use this setting to lock down the RD Session Host server for users accessing it for their primary desktop.
