create a GPO and link it to the OU containing the Citrix Desktops would be the best option

This should also help in the file redirection policy setting in Xenapp or xendesktop:

Client removable drives
Applicable products: XenApp; XenDesktop

This setting allows or prevents users from accessing or saving files to USB drives on the user device. By default, accessing client removable drives is allowed.

When allowing this setting, make sure the Client drive redirection setting is present and set to Allowed. If these settings are disabled, client removable drives are not mapped and users cannot access these drives manually, regardless of the state of the Client removable drives setting.

To ensure removable drives are automatically connected when users log on, configure the Auto connect client drives setting.

Load the group policy templates from "C:\Program files(x86)\ica client\configuration". You should attach both icaclient.adm and icaclient-usb.adm templates that are saved in common file share. To attach them, open relevant group policy object editor --> Computer configuration --> Right click on Administrative templates --> click add remove templates and then point the template from network share.
 
Expand the Computer configuration-->Administrative templates --> Classic Administrative templates -->Citrix componants -->Citrix receiver-->Remoting client device-->USB Plug-n-Play devices and set disable.
open cmd with administrative priviledges and run gpupdate/force command.
