Disable creation of PST but still allow access to existing

In Outlook 2010, how do I disable the creation of PSTs through group policy but allow users to maintain access to their existing PSTs, and not add to it, if possible.

I am going through the process of archiving the PSTs them off, but until the process is completed, users still need to access their PSTs temporarily.

Thanks.

Just to verify, would you still be able to access your existing PSTs after doing this?

Yes, this only disables the ability to add additional PST files to a profile.
