Then it would seem that you would have to set the local drives to only be accessed by administrator group. I hope yoou are talking about local drives other than C: or none of the standard users would be able to log in. Modify the permissions on each drive you wish to limit.

ya none of the standard users would be able to log in the local driver. But if they want to, they have to provide the admin user and password to get the access... can you please explain how to do the same....
