    Hi All,

    I have a user on my network who is using a usb drive. I would like to be able to access the contents of this drive accross the network.

    We are both using wxp sp2, I am logged on as an administrator (with domain admin rights) and can remotely connect to the user’s machine using computer management mmc and see whether the user has the usb drive connected (under storage then disk management). I can right click on the disk and then go to properties and volumes, selected the drive, but then cannot click on ‘properties’ as it is greyed out. I want to be able to go into here to share the drive.

    Can anyone help? or is there another way to remotely enable an administrative share on a removable disk? I can’t really do it locally to the machine unless i do it out of hours (when the usb disk will not be there) as we are auditing this user.

    We have a win server 2k3 network with group policy if that is any help.
