Hi

I have IE as shell. Can I somehow limit the possibility to enter C: in the
address field to limit access to the drive?

Thanks
Franz

Franz,

Read in MSDN about Explorer policy NoDrives.
([HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer],"NoDrives" dword)

Or here is the link for you: http://www.g4tv.com/screensavers/features/25208/Sarahs_Windows_Tweak_Hide_Your_Drives.html

Hi KM,

Thanks for this, I may be use it.
However, it covers Explorer only. It is still possible to enter c: in IE and
it then shows the drive.

Thanks and best regards
Franz

Franz,

That Policy (NoDrives registry) will also affect Internet Explorer.
http://www.microsoft.com/resources/documentation/Windows/2000/server/reskit/en-us/regentry/58871.asp

Also, there is another reg.value that may be interesting to you: NoViewOnDrive. The same rules, the same reg.path:

It "kind of" does, yes. In open and save dialogs the drives are gone. But,
it is still possible to type c: in the address field and then it will show
the contents of the drive and one can then navigate and do whatever ....
