To whom may it concern, Currently, I'm running a server 2003 enterprise for my domain (DC) and for now, want to restrict my clients to use USB flash disk but not sure how to do it. Please show me how to do it. Thank you. Regards Harry

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I believe you will need to deny everything individually through Group Policies. Run ‘Gpedit.msc’, then the options to restrict CD-ROM/FLOPPY etc are located in ‘Comp Conf > Win Settings > Security Settings > Security Options’.

Have a look at this similar question/answer: Disabling USB flash drive use via group policy.

I didn’t tried personally, but I was told that the user needed to be a local administrator so that it could work.

    You will have to create an OU in AD and move all computers that are registered to this OU. Then create a GPO for this OU which pushes this policy out to those machines when connecting to the domain.

    You should move on. It is now 2013, and your server software is ten years old.
