copy/cut paste to USB

Unanswered Question
Mar 19th, 2008

I have a rule in place to deny all application to write to @removable:\** . I assumed this would block anything going to them. I can't do a save or a save as to the USB but I can copy/cut and paste and drag and drop to it. Any ideas on blocking the copy/cut and paste and drag and drop?

Thanks in Advance...

I have this problem too.

Won't let me save it. I type it in that way and hit save and it changes it back to @removable:\**

This is a File Access Control rule, correct?

Does it generate an error or alert when it fails?

If so, try creating a new one from scratch.

Yes it is a File Access Control rule.

No, it doesn't generate an error or alert.

should I try a new rule still?

I think so yes. I'm not sure what the problem might be.

I was able to create one and it worked properly.

I used @removable\**\* (it actually changes mine to that when I create the rule no matter what I put).

This is after it warns me with:

Warning: Dangerous application class/file selection (might render the system unusable).

What version?
