It would be one of these settings at the following location:
Local Computer Policy\User Configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Windows Explorer
"Hide these drives in My Computer"
"Prevent access to drives from My Computer"

However, if the settings you describe have been set via Group Policy, those settings will ALWAYS override anything defined locally.

that can only be done from the domain controller or with a tool such as GPMC:

You need to be delegated either Group Polciy Creator/Owner or Domain Admin rights to edit group policies.
