Enabling Jump Drives?Locked
In several of our public facilities (labs, library, etc.) we’ve set security so users can’t do much except execute programs and save files to their network drive space.
Now comes the part where I’m suffering some brain mush: several students on campus cart their files back and forth from home with jump drives. Is there a fairly easy way to allow them to access the drives in Win 2K short of circumventing security too badly? And while we’re on this subject, is there a very compelling BAD reason to not want to give them this privilege (aside from opening the machines up to mishief by circumventing security)? We certainly want to make life convenient for students and keep them happy tuition-paying campers, but not at the expense of sacrificing security completely. We’re not that altruistic.
Thanks in advance for brilliant ideas…
