When we order computers they are shipped with harddrives way larger than we care for our users to have. We've been installing windows on a 80GB partition and leaving the rest unpartitioned.
Our users are currently local admins on their machines. Is there a way to prevent them from partitioning the harddrive through local security policy or does anyone know of a way to hide the unpartitioned space so it isn't visible through disk management?
We are not partitioning the whole disk because it takes too long to encrypt the larger harddrives with our encyption software and we encourage people to save stuff to the network rather than locally.
