Prevent users from viewing local C-drive on XenApp Server

Steve Chambers


Hello, is it still best practice to use Microsoft Group Policy to prevent users from being able to access the local C-drive on the XenApp Server but allow them access to their network drives? If so which policies should be enabled? From another post it was mentioned to "Hide these specified drives in My Computer" and "Prevent access to drives from My Computer". This is on a Microsoft 2016 Server.


Thank you,

Just as an note on this, please be aware that even by Server hiding drives through GPO,  your  users will still be able to use "Search" to find the local drives,  I had a case open with Microsoft on this one for sometime, and it is down to using Cortana for the search.


On Server 2019 I have found a hack to rename the Search process to remove this facility, that seems to work.


Still waiting on Microsoft to officially respond with the official process for doing this.
