Local storage redirection to WVD: how to block it

Hi everyone,

I do have a small question: how can I block the redirection of my local drive and printer to the WVD environment? I know about the GPO and the Powershell script version, but those are applied to all users that login to that tenant, and I'm not an Admin on the WVD environment, just a user.

Instead, I'm trying to figure out a way to deny this redirection from my local machine. Maybe there is a service or a registry that can be modified, to make this happen. Does anyone have any ideas?

Thank you again.

You have these properties in the portal on the RDP Properties of you Host Pool. Is this what you are lookin for?
If you ask is different, please let us know.

Hi @vipullag-MSFT, I do know about this one as also, but I think this change applies to all users that login to that specific Tenant. I'm actually thinking of what can I change/disable on my personal device, to stop the Remote service from redirecting drivers and printers to the WVD. I'm suspecting there should be a local service or a key in the registry that has to be modified. As of now, I have not figured it out, but I'm still working on it.

Also, thank you for the update, the Console from Azure is pretty easy and good setup.

This is a host pool setting so applies to all users on all session hosts within it. I checked with internal team on this, there is a feature request in to enable conditional access to host pools that should incorporated this. You should raise this through the Feedback process to add weight to this feature here.
