My network is a domain controller running 2012r2, and a member server joined to the domain running 2016, configured as an RDS terminal server. I created a group policy object that would hide the c:\ drive as a test. I didn't reset the GPO back to the original configuration before I deleted it.  Now I have lost the c:\ drive in my computer, on the domain controller, the RDS terminal server and one domain connected workstation. The GPO is deleted, but is still being applied. I tried to recreate the GPO with the correct configuration, but it did not restore the c:\ drive in my computer on any of the machines. I also looked in the policy folder inside sysvol, but there was no registry entry for the hide drive GPO. I ran gpresult, and on the html report, you can see the GPO is still being applied. I have included a screenshot of the gpresult output and the text file output. I am reading the forums, but nothing is restoring the c:\ drive. Can someone assist me with restoring the c:\ drive to the servers and the workstation. Thank you very much.
