We have a situation where multiple users have the same drive mapping GPO but not all the users have access to the shares. When I add the drives to my GPO the user gets all the mapping but he hasn't got permission to access them.

Is there a way to prevent the user from seeing the shares that he has no permission to? I already activated access based enumaration on our file server but that does not work.

Its a Server 2008 R2 network enviroment where all the users work on a remote desktop server.
