How can I deny users saving data onto their c drive via gpo in Server 2008? We have customer data from desktop, and my documents forwarded via GPO to a file server, and I want to ensure they do not save anything to the c drive. Thsi will make it very easy to reimage machines w/o worryng that they have data elsewhere on their machines.

Computer Configuration -> Preferences -> Windows Settings -> Folders (Path C:\) -> Attributes (Read-only)

Common tab -> Item-level target -> New Item -> Security Group -> X
