Scripting Group Policy options

By alxcsby ·
I have a script that I've picked up from MS to create a GP administrative templat that allows me to block USB Storage (and others, if necessary).
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/555324
I'm planning on editing it to also block SD cards, but otherwise, I'm leaving it as is.

Once that's installed (care of an xcopy bat), it adds a template in the GPEdit.msc console with the option to select radio buttons for "enabled" or "disabled" for each storage device in the script.

My question is as follows:
Is there a script or a bat file that could be used to configure those options, once they're added to GP. I.E. "Double-click this file to enable USB storage." "Double-click this file to disable USB storage."

But if the policy is either enabled or disabled wouldn't that enable/disable the device?

While the default refresh is 90 minutes [give or take a few] and you can force and update from the command line [thus create a script to do it] your doing something that really isn't what was intended group policy to do.
