|Floplock.exe - Lock Floppy Disk Drives||
FloppyLock is a service that allows you to control access to the floppy drives of a computer. This service can be used to help prevent unauthorized software installation or the introduction of viruses via floppy disks. When the service is started on Windows 2000 Professional, only members of the Administrators and Power Users groups can access the floppy drives. When the service is started on Windows 2000 Server, only members of the Administrators group can access floppy drives. FlopLock works by assigning a Discretionary Access Control List (DACL) to a floppy drive. When FlopLock has the floppy drives on a machine locked, only users in the Adminstrators group can use the floppy drive(s). If the FloppyLock service is configured to start automatically, the lock stays in place even after the computer is restarted.
