Blocking storage devices

Recommended Posts

Hello, I wish to use the Device Control feature to block all storage devices (SATA, USB or otherwise) from interacting with my computer (being read/written to), however I am having some issues.


Firstly, if I go into Setup > Computer Protection > Device Control, then click the 'edit' link next to either rules or groups there is a populate button that is supposed to detect connected storage devices. This populate button opens up a new window for me, but the window is empty, the list does not actually populate. How might I fix this?


Secondly, it is unclear to me how to properly achieve the task at hand; to block all storage devices except those I explicitly state are to be allowed.


Any help would be much appreciated, thanks.

My QA tester reminded me that if you have just clicked "Integrate into system" that you need to do a computer restart before continuing. After doing the computer restart, the Populate did detect all connected devices on our test machine.
