Description

Control whether users can access data and applications on external discs. External disks include floppy disks, FireWire drives, and all other external storage devices except CDs and DVDs. The valid options are:

  • allow to allow read and write access to external discs without authentication.
  • allow, read-only to allow read-only access to external discs.
  • allow, require authentication to require users to provide credentials for authentication before allowing them access to external discs.
  • allow, require authentication, read-only to require users to provide credentials for authentication before allowing them access to external discs, and grant read-only access to the media if authentication is successful.
  • deny to prevent users from accessing any data or applications on external discs.

Once this group policy is enabled, it takes effect when users log out and log back in.
