Disable Read & Write to USB diskdrive/pendrive

In response to query from Bojovic based on my previous post Disable Write to USB Drive Harddisk & Pendrive

regedit to disable read write to usb drive

Below are steps to totally disable the use of USB harddrive and pendrive from your computer.
1) run the regedit
2) Navigate to the following registry key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\USBSTOR

3) then locate for name 'start', type 'REG_DWORD' and set the value to 4


note: if later you decide to allow the use of USB harddrive and pendrive, just set the 'REG_DWORD' value to 3.
