Hello,

Can somebody tell me how I can block usb drives (hard drives or usb keys) from AD 2008 R2, but allow some devices (based on a list or other method)?

Of course, if another solution that AD policies is better, I can hear it.

how are you going to filter them (the list), filter them on what? name, size ???

you can ENABLE / DISABLE usb ports in the BIOS configuration ... in my university daily work, we use a software that gives specific DRIVE LETTER to the usb drives.

my wondering is on what rules you want to filter them? does this rules affects a SINGLE PC or multiple users on a PC? decide. i use the disable option from the bios
