Setting up users so that they can only save to a USB device

    Question

  • I have a room of 9 public computers. They are on a local Windows Server 2012 R2 Standard domain. I want them to be able to download pictures and email attachments but only to removable media. Can I restrict the "Save To" location to only show removable media?

    What it is exactly is a senior citizen center's computer room. They want to be able to save files, but I don't want them to save files to the local drive. External hard drive or USB flash drive only. Is this even possible?

  • Hi,
    As far as I know, we could set the file location for local drives of email attachments in the group policy via registry, but for removable drives, I doubt that it is working as the drives are “moving”, not static which could be recognized in the registry.
    You could refer to the following KB and have a try to see if it works:
    How to change the folder where e-mail messages and attachments are saved in Outlook 2003 and in Outlook 2007

    And the question is also related to outlook, I would suggest that you could also ask it in the outlook forum to see if more information is offered.
