    In ERAC Policy / Config Editor

    > ESET SS, NOD32 AV > File-System Filter > Setup > Removable Media > Block Removable Media: Yes > Allowed Removable Media: Volume 0 o_O

    Does anyone know how you add entries to the list of Allowed Removable Media > Edit Gives the Options of Select All - Deselect All - Ok - Cancel but the list is always blank - Where is ERAS supposed to get the list of Removable Media Devices from - Those attached to the Server, The Local Console Machine or a selected client?

    How does this work? Does it allow removable media by specific USB port address / CD drive letter (which is how it works in NOD32 > Setup > Real-Time File Protection > Advanced Setup > Block Removable Media > Exceptions :thumbd:

    or is it USB/Removable media device specific? :thumb:

    Thanks is advance

    You must download the configuration of a specific client in order to populate the list of devices.

    Marcos,

    Many thanks, got it now, you have to download the config from a specific client save it as a new config file and then edit it to see and edit a populated list.

    Unfortunately this has confirmed that the Config & Policy USB exceptions work by USB port address / CD drive letter and not by specific device.
    Which is to say that you can allow an exception for a specific USB port that would then allow ANY USB device to have access - Which is not really very useful.

    I was hoping that it would allow a list of exceptions for Authorised USB devices only, but it does'nt :thumbd: :'(

    I say make a suggestion in the wishlist. It would be a handy addition if you would want to be able to allow certain USB devices throughout the network.
