But if you want to go the civilized route, there are registry keys you can manipulate to do this. Go to Microsoft's support site or google this info, as your question has been answered numerous times before on many blogs and knowledge base articles.

It's not nice to threaten people.

It's also not efficient; if you just start smashing, then explain to everybody, whose complete attention you will then suddenly have, "This is what happens when you use pen drives," nobody will use pen drives any more.

Until a couple minutes after you're escorted from the building, emphatically invited never to return.

Or, if swinging a hammer is too strenuous for you, the wusses at the NSA have found a more relaxing means to prevent use of pen drives by disabling the machine instead of the user.

Preventing USB pen drives

I think the best way is to manage it with software. You mentioned you want to control who can or cant access the Pen drives. We use software call Relex Disknet Pro on our network and we can control who uses the Pen drives and whether or not you have read/write access to them. The link is:

Good luck. Dont need to smash any fingers with this software.

This is the way to go.

I instaled this for a banking client. It works wonderfully.

You cana lock out pen drives but still allow USB mice and printers.

Very good program.

I disagree.

Since the original request did not say anything about needing to use external hard drives, the TechRepublic article that blocks all USB storage is good enough, and no software purchase is necessary.

I still say that smashing fingers is the cheapest solution :^0

At least it will get the point across, but the turnover for the admin job will be quite high.

Drop by the Friday Yuk sometime if you think there wouldn't be a queue around the block for that admin job!
