  • Hi,

    It depends on the configuration.  If it is disabled using GPO, you need to enable using GPO by modify the settings.

    if  you change manually by registry settings on machines, GPO will override the same after GP interval.

    USB reg settings: manual change

    Enable USB from Registry Editor

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\USBSTOR]

    "Start"=dword:00000003

    Disable USB from Registry Editor

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\USBSTOR]

    "Start"=dword:00000004

    You mush have privileged account to modify the reg.
