Updated: January 21, 2005

Applies To: Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2003 R2, Windows Server 2003 with SP1, Windows Server 2003 with SP2

Devices: Restrict floppy access to locally logged-on user only


This security setting determines whether removable floppy media are accessible to both local and remote users simultaneously.

If this policy is enabled, it allows only the interactively logged-on user to access removable floppy media. If this policy is enabled and no one is logged on interactively, the floppy can be accessed over the network.

Default: Disabled.

Configuring this security setting

You can configure this security setting by opening the appropriate policy and expanding the console tree as such: Computer Configuration\Windows Settings\Security Settings\Local Policies\Security Options\

For specific instructions about how to configure security policy settings, see Edit security settings on a Group Policy object.
