Hi,

I wish to edit the system.adm to hide the C & D drive. Unfortunately the GP
doesn't have that option. I'm currently looking at the NoViewOnDrive section
& each option has a numerical value.

Does anyone know if there is a numerical value I can use, or if it's even
possible to hide both of these drive?

Cheers

Download and install TweakUI:

Microsoft PowerToys for Windows XP (TweakUI)
http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/downloads/powertoys/...

After installing, go to Start > Programs > PowerToys for Windows XP >
TweakUI. Expand 'My Computer', click on 'Drives', then uncheck the
drive letter you wish to hide.

It's 12. The drives that are hidden are the sum of their
position in the alphabet given a binary value. For instance A
is 1, B is 2, C is 4, D is 8, E is 16 and so on. Note how
ALLDrives is 2 to the 26th power. I have no idea how you
implement that in group policy but that's how it works in the
registry. Here's an article that describes that process:

Good luck
