Hi There,
Would anyone kind soul assist.
I've local admin rights to my desktop on Vista SP1.
This current company blocks all access for USB ports/drives and I need to find a way to unlock it; where usb ports for flash drives are deactivated/locked/blocked.
Company files are just too large and internet connection is quite bad so online backing up and storage don't really work well.
Appreciate every advice and help.
Cheers
JOey :thumbsup:

Just talk to your resident IT guy, and explain the situation. Considering you have admin rights on your desktop, they either trust you, or you access the company's network from your home, so as I said, just talk to the IT guy.

You need to resolve the issue with your current company.

They do not want company personnel to have access to the USB ports.

If your explanation to your immediate supervisor isn't sufficient for them to change their policy for you, I'd say that's the end of it.

Otherwise, if you violate this policy, you'll be posting in the "jobs wanted" area.

Just my opinion.


I know you think you understand what you thought I said,
but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant!
