Is it possible for a Windows user to execute program in an Windows hidden drive partition?
Posted on 2012-04-02
Our public workstations are currently set with a drive partition (let's say, Z:) hidden from normal public user, and the normal public user cannot access Z: either through Windows or DOS command prompt (i.e. "Access is denied" error is shown when public user is trying to access the drive).
The Z: is installed with Symantec Endpoint Protection virus definition files.
Since we are planning to install another program to that drive, we would like to determine whether if the program is installed, the program can be run successfully by normal public user account.
How can our staff, with limited computer knowledge, determine the answer of this question? Since we are not able to remotely check the workstations and we have no resource to check it on site, we can only rely on our staff to check it on-site for us.
