Hello Experts! I have a tough one for you!
I am the server admin on a server running 2008 standard and several weeks ago I had implemented some group policy's that restricted the usb of usb mass storage devices. now, I removed that GPO so that I could use a USB harddrive to do a server backup and all I get when trying to access the drive is Access Denied!!!! I have been though all of the GPO's both network wide and local machine and everything is "not configured" and still nothing. I have done a GPUpdate /force in the command prompt along with system reboots and no luck. I am completely stumpped. I have also been through the registry to make sure the USBStor is correctly configured and it is. The funny thing is that all the client machines running windows XP are fine and allow me to use the drives, just not the server. I have logged in as both the admin and a regular user and still nothing. PLEASE HELP ME!!!! I am desperate at this point.
