Can I block devices at specific times?

Device Scheduler

The device scheduler allows the administrator to assign when the device permissions will be enforced by assigning the start time and stop time for particular devices on the network. Only storage devices are available for the device scheduler.

This is a Group-specific setting. Groups can be assigned to three levels of device accesses:

Full Access: The computer with this access permission can read and write to the specified external devices that are connected to the computer.

Read Only: The computer with this access permission can only read the information from the specified external device that is connected to the computer. The user will not be able to copy any information to the specified external device. This option is only available to storage devices.

No Access: The computer with this access permission cannot read or write to the specified external devices that are connected to the computer.
