How do I prevent use of Windows Explorer Address Bar to get to C drive?
Posted on 2008-10-30
On Windows Server 2000, using Terminal Services, I have hidden the C and D drives via AD Group Policy, but in Windows Explorer, how to I prevent use of the Address bar to get to C:\? The C drive (and it's contents) needs the NTFS permissions to be Everyone, so I cannot prevent users from access to the C drive while in Windows Explorer through NTFS permission changes. I thought that perhaps there would be an AD Group Policy and/or reg hack for this, but I cannot find it. Goal is for users to get a simple "Access Denied" message if they type C:\ in the Windows Explorer Address bar.
