USB/CD Drive Blocking

File Sight Endpoints can be told to automatically eject any USB drive or CDs/DVDs that are not on the Global Media White List.

If an Endpoint doesn't have a setting, it will use the Global Default Setting as shown below.

To change the setting for individual Endpoints, use the Endpoint Operations page.

Global Media White List

If blocking is to be done, the USB drives/CDs/DVDs are checked against the Global Media White List. This is a list of Volume Serial Numbers from drives/discs that are allowed.

Volume Serial Numbers for drives can most easily be seen from a command prompt with the dir or vol commands.


Enter the Volume Serial Number in the Global Media White List. Since that number doesn't help identify the drive/disc, you can add a comment after it with the # symbol.
