Retsrictiing access to local drives through common open dialogue box
I'm in the final stages of securing our new windows 2000 user
environment, amongst other things, all local drives are hidden from my
computer and access to the open / save common dialogue box has been
disabled where possible.
My problem is that users are still able to browse to the local drives,
W & X, via the common open/save dialogue box simply by typing w: or x:
and hitting return.
Is trawling through the file system and checking NTFS permissions the
only way of preventing them from doing any damage? Or is there a way
that browsing access to the drives can be completely disabled?
Thanks a lot,
Re: Retsrictiing access to local drives through common open dialogue box
Just resolved my problem.
I over looked the "prevent access to drives from my computer" policy
I've customised the system.adm template to present the option to block
my custom drives in the above policy option.
Once enabled, this also denies access to the drives through the common
open / save dialogue box.
