Hello ukpatel, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You might see if either method in the tutorials below may be what was used to block access to USB drives.

USB Storage Device - Enable or Disable Connecting


Removable Drives - Allow or Deny All Access

Hope this helps, :)

Hi ukpatel,

Do you have the admin rights to the computer?

Is your friend the administrator?

The one who did it can also undo it.

In addition, if your PC is part of your company's domain, then you'll need to talk with the domain administrator since that will override anything you have set on your PC while joined to the domain.

It's not likely that they will allow it for security purposes though.
