Today organizations is allowing users to plug in a USB FLASH DRIVE, due to this they can easily copy corporate data. Since in Window XP, you can do disable writing to USB devices altogether using a simple trick, however one should also note that if you are using this trick, you should make sure that the users are not administrators on the computers, because they could easily change this setting back.

To do this hack simply follow the steps given below.

1. Goto start --> Run. Type "regedit" without double quotes and press OK.
2. Find the key [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\Currentcontrolset\Control].
3. Make a new key named it ”StorageDevicePolicies”. Make a new DWORD value in it, name it “Write Protect”.
4. Now set the DWORD value to 1 to enable write protect and set it to 0 to disable write protect.

You can also simply paste the below code to Notepad and save it as enable.reg to enable write protect.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

And save the following code to notepad as disable.reg  to make write protect disabled.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

Double click the enable.reg file to make write protect enable and disable.reg to disable write protect.
