Administrators may use the NODRIVES entry to disable access to floppy drives on a per-user basis. The NODRIVES entry uses a 32-bit word to define local and network drive visibility for each logical drive in the computer. The lower 26 bits of the 32-bit word correspond to drive letters A through Z. Drives are visible when set to 0 and hidden when set to 1.

Key: [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer]
Value Name: NODRIVES
Data Type: REG_DWORD
Data: A bit mask of 11111111111111111111111111 (0x3FFFFFFh) would hide all drive letters.
