Group Policy Editor

    Question

  • Hi Everyone!

    I want to disable USB access for pen drive or flash drives but allow external CD/DVD access through group policy management. I have done in some way but it deny access to all class of storage including CD/DVD. I can gain this by using regedit. But I want this as a domain policy. Please help!

  • Hi starsing,

    if you can achieve it using regedit then whatever you changed can be pushed domain level from group policy using ADM template files.

    I can help you making an ADM file for you if you prefer. just I need the registry changes you have done and I will convert it to ADM file for you to import in domain policy

    Thanks


    Thanks Mahmoud

  • Hi,
    I would suggest to have a try to control the device installation by their hardware ID. The policy is Prevent Installation of a Device by Hardware ID which is located under Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\System\Device Installation\Device Installation Restrictions.
    You could try it by following the articles as below:
