Looking for a way to restrict access to removable drives in your domain on your workstations? It's easier than you might think! There is a registry setting you can set that will turn all removable drives into read-only devices. This includes USB thumb drives, hard drives, and even CD/DVD writers. Of course editing the registry is a pain in the butt if you have a domain with dozens or hundreds of workstations, so I created this Administrative Template for use in Group Policy to configure this setting for you.
