Windows 7: Restrict Disk, File or Folder Properties or Remove Context Menu Option

16 May 2012   #1

Windows 7 Pro x64
Restrict Disk, File or Folder Properties or Remove Context Menu Option

I have a windows 2008 domain with windows 7 Pro X64 desktops. I've dowloaded the windows 7/windows 2008 ADMX templates. I've gone through every option I could find to configure the desktops with this but I still can't accomplish everything needed... so I'm looking to manual registry edits instead.

I want to restrict access to view Disk, File, or Folder Properties - specifically because I don't want people viewing volume security setting, or disk details. We use per user disk quota's and when receive notifcations of exceeding limits and then look to properties and see there's 200GB of SAN space they ignore the alerts thinking that the 200GB free space is theirs alone.

I already found policies to remove File Menu from Explorer and I know I can disable context menu options altogether but I'd rather leave this in place so the other context menu options are available for work needs.

I haven't found much in my searches. Can anyone offer help on if the Properties context menu can be removed from these items or if Properties can be restricted?
