We are currently requiring the use of Remote Desktop Connections for numerous users to access their office computers 
from home.  The connections are running through a secure VPN tunnel and are working as designed, with one exception.  
We do not want users accessing there home hard drives through this method.  With the RDP client by default the sharing 
of the home drives is unchecked, but is very easy to enable it and then users can transfer internal documents onto a 
home computer or allow Viruses from the home computer onto the Corporate Network.

Any thoughts on how to rectify this?

Group Policy is definately out of the question, we cannot push group policy to the users home PC's.


You can block mounting user's drives on the server in user properties. By default it is not blocked.
