  • Question

  • HI

    Here we are Using the GPO managing server as 2008 r2 and the end users are using Windows 8.1 prof.We are find ing some issues related to the removable storage devices settings in GPO.We have created a GPO for blocking the removable storage devices as mentioned below.

    User Configuration\Policies\Administrative Templates\System\Removable Storage Access.

    We have enabled the settings "All removable storage classes:Deny All Access.

    But unfortunately its not working as of now .

    But if we set the same settings in Computer configuration it works perfect.

    Please help me on this part.

  • Hi,

    Check you security filtering, User Configuration settings in Group Policy apply to users, regardless of which computer they log on to.
