How To Disable USB Drives in Windows 10


There are many situations where you need to disable your USB, CD or other Portable devices in your Windows 10 PC. I really worked with many applications and even windows default registry hack and group policy options.

But Removable Access Tool is a simple to use portable freeware application which aids in the control of external storage devices such as USB flash drives, CD/DVD drives, as well as floppy, tape and WPD devices.

Ratool can disable USB storage access or enable write protection on all USB flash drives, thus preventing data from being modified or deleted, protecting your confidential data from being copied by others.
