Can someone please advise how i can lockdown our c drive so that users can only save into folders inside c drive and not on the root c drive.  I would like to set this up using group policy, just not sure which setting would lock this down.

To get a simple one...

Try to hide C drive through Group Policy, and then they can save ALL in their "MyDocument" and "Desktop" only.

No i can't hide c drive, it must be shown on their list of drives.  I want the users to see all the folder inside c drive, just not save anything on the root.

Using Active Directory may be cumbersome.  Allow the properties of "Read and Execute" for everyone on the root C: and leave the "Write" property unchecked.  Do not choose "Deny" for any of the permissions.  Do not propagate permissions.  Then setup the permissions for the rest of the folders on the C: drive as read, write, and execute with the inclusion to propagate the permissions to child folders.  The desired effect is pretty much the same if I'm not mistaken.
