Hide system drive for Citrix Presentation

Hi,

I would like to find a way to hide my e:\ which is my system drive of my citrix presentation.

I tried GPO but I cant hide a drive to a computer instead of a user. I need to hide drive only from my server not for a specified user.

I tried to add this command to the login script but apparently a user get access is denied for an unknown reason.. I thought an authentificated users could change a HK_Current_user

reg add "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer" /v NoDrives /t reg_dword /d 29 /f

It works only for admin...

I want to hide the system drive for all users so TweakUI and Xsetup is not for multiusers. Only for the user that is logged in.

Thx in advanced

So denzmor, you understand that you can create an OU, drop your terminal servers in, create a Policy on that OU and apply it to all users...thats what you ended up doing, right?  This does exactly what you want because the user policies are only in effect when the account is signing onto a machine in that OU.

Hmm, mcgIT solved the question and I told the fellow exactly how to filter the fix down to the computers he wishes to target.  I would suggest 75% to mcgIT and 25% to myself IMO.
