Q

Is there a way to control the access users have to their local C-Drives while using Windows Terminal

Expert Christa Anderson helps a reader use Group Policy to disallow user access to local C-Drives while using Windows Terminal Server 2003.

I do not want the users to have access to their local C-Drives while using Windows Terminal Server 2003. Is there a way I can control this using Group Policy?

If you don't want them to access any of their local drives from within the Terminal Services session, then disable drive mapping (it's disabled by default). If you'd prefer to be selective about it (that is, they can't get to C: but can get to their CD drives) then this won't work, since Win2K3 drive mapping is an all-or-nothing proposition.
