I have a few hp t5640 thinclients that i have a problem with.
When logged in as "Users" the default user and you connect an usb drive i cant browse to it. It says its restricted, but when i log in as admin its no problem. Ive tried to find anything on local computer policy but cant find how to enable this.

I have had the same issue. The way I got around it was to logon as local admin, disable the write filter then share the thumb drive. Create a shortcut to the share, put it on the user's desktop with everyone permission.

But I found this on the HP site which might help.

I found what it was, and its the citrix farm that is configured to not to map up a: .. and the thinclient creates it as a:.. so i hade to dive into the registry to change that. Change it to an another drive letter and it worked.
