Would like to 'hide' Total Size and Free Space

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.configuration_manage (More info?)

Is there a way to hide the Total Size and Free Space
columns in Windows Explorer? Specifically, I'd like to
prevent my users from seeing the Network Drive numbers to
keep them from the false idea that they have tons of
storage space.

    Thanks for the info - one more question, how can I do
    this domain-wide? I haven't found a Group Policy setting
    that can accomplish this or any registry-specific
    settings.

    Sandy,

    I looked through Group Policy and couldn't find anything.

    I'm sure that there are registry settings, but I don't know what they are.
