Hello all. I have MS Project 2013 published on a XenApp server. I have a consultant that will be doing Project work. When they go to open a file, you can pop in UNC paths and see different shares on the the servers. Management wants this blocked. I have setup the Office 2013 GPO templates and can accomplish this with the Save dialogue. The Open dialogue remains a mystery. I have scoured the internet and have not found a solution. Experts, please help!

Enabling Access Based Enumeration on your shares would be the best way to achieve this. When enabled, the users will only be able to see shares that they have access to.

Here's how to configure it for your shares: http://blogs.technet.com/b/aralves/archive/2007/09/20/windows-server-2008-access-based-enumeration.aspx
