Hello Experts! I need to block users in a specific Active Directory Container (SBS 2003) from Domain desktops to External Media (Flash Drives, CD's/DVD's). I know disabling right click is straighforward enough. Had a few ideas. One, block all drives except sanctioned mapped drives. Need to know if that is possible or if there is a simpler solution.

Includes the code for creating the custom adm file that can be uploaded to the GP... this will take care of both.
