How can I Securing Network Access to Floppy Drives?

Securing Network Access to Floppy Drives

This setting determines whether data in the floppy disk drive is accessible to other users. This value entry satisfies, in part, the C2 security requirement that you must be able to secure removable media. Because the floppy disk drive is a volume, by default it is shared as an administrative share on the network. If the option is on, the floppy disk drive is allocated to the user as part of the interactive logon process and, therefore, only the current user can access it. This prevents administrators and remote users (and even the same user at a different workstation) from accessing the drive while the current user is logged on. The drive is shared again when the current user logs off.

Option affects the whole PC. Reboot your PC to activate or deactivate this option.
