GPO Filtering for a user of computer settings.

    Question

  • I have defined a GPO with only the computer settings and I would like to exclude a particular user from this GPO, can I achieve this with GPO filtering?

    No. If you want to exclude users, you have to disable removable storage
    in the user part of your GPOs...

  • That means computer settings can only be filtered for computer accounts and user settings can be filtered for user accounts. My requirement is, I have computer settings defined in the GPO which disables removable storage. Now I would like to exclude this policy for a particular user rather than the computer. Is it possible?
