  • Hi,

    configure the setting here @ Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\System\Removable Storage Access

    Create a GPO and link to the OU contains users from dept1

    Go to delegation tab > advanced button (at right side below) > add the user  (which you dont want to apply this policy) into the security setting > go to apply group policy and select Deny.

    By doing this all the users will be blocked with USB access except user1 from dept1
