I am trying to use a group Policy on a Terminal server to restrict local drive access but allow access to the network mapped drives. I found the policy that I want to use and it is not working as I think it should.  You have the option to choose specific drives letters  and combinations (i.e. A, B, C, D) and when I choose any combination of the drive letters, no access to any drives (including the network mapped drives) is given.  When I disable this setting, I get access to all drives.  (It seems to be all or nothing)  Has anyone else experience this and is there a possible work around.

Thanks for the reply.  That is the policy I am using, but it is not working.

I wrote too soon.  I am using the policy to restrict drives.  However, yes, I had  also worked with this policy and it did not seem to help.
