Re: All removable media "Windows Vista destination folder access d
Sorry but still not working. All properties under both Computer Configuration
& User Configuration > Removable Storage Access were initially set as Not
I first set the Computer Configuration ... All Removable Storage class: Deny
all write access property to Disabled and rebooted. No joy. Then did the same
for User Configuration. Ditto. And Disabled the individual device Deny Write
Access as well and rebooted. Again, no joy.
One thing I did discover before trying any of this is that I could write to
CD-R media after all, but not to DVD-R, floppy disk or USB flash.
