Hi Guys,

We would like to limit RDP users from viewing  / accessing folders in C: drive on a specific server.
Such as C:\PROGRAM FILES, C:\WINDOWS, etc

Users have dedicated folders to which they have shortcuts on the desktop, thus they don't need to browse folders.

One way is to setup a security group for RDP users
Then add a Deny permission entry for this group on C: root

Thus folders in C: root should be visible to everyone, but the RDP users

Any ideas, Is this safe to do?
