Request for Assistance in Setting Up Desktop-Only Data Saving Policy in Intune

Rajdip Das 0 Reputation points

Dear Team,

Good Day!

I am reaching out to seek assistance in setting up a new policy within Microsoft Intune. The objective of this policy is to restrict our users so that they are only able to save data within the Desktop folder. This means they should not have the capability to save to any other folders or drives.

Could you please provide me with the necessary steps or guide me through the process of setting up this policy? Your expertise and support in this matter would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks & Regards,

    Hi @Rajdip das,
    You can create a configurations profile for windows 10 or later.
    You can limit locations with Intune;
    User's image

    With GPO you can explicit desktop Only
    Computer Configuration > Policy > Windows Settings > Security Settings > File System.

    Right-click and add %userprofile%\Desktop (or other folders you want to restrict).

    Always consider the trade-off between security and user experience when implementing these restrictions.
