GPO hide drive C

Presentation

In this tutorial, we’ll see how to hide drive C using Group Policy (GPO).

This GPO is often used to hide drives on RDS farms.

Hiding the reader does not prevent access, it is possible to access the reader by the browser directly entering his address.

If you want to apply the GPO to posts / servers that are in a particular OU, you will need to set up a callback loop.

Implementation

1. Open the Group Policy Management console, right-click on OR 1 where the policy should be applied and click Create GPO in this domain, and link it here … 2.
