I use Storage Device Manager to auto-mount an NTFS drive at boot time. Now, suppose I have 3 users on my machine: AAA, BBB, and CCC.

I want the NTFS drive to auto-mount for AAA & BBB, but make it unavailable for user CCC. How should I configure Storage Device Manager to achieve this?

I played around with settings quite a bit, but all I could manage is either block the drive for ALL users (except root) or make it visible to ALL users.

Please help.

Thanks.

I don't know how you can prevent some users from mounting drives, but you can set group access of drives & files then only allow certain users to be in that group.

This may help you...
