Removable Drive Security based on USB storage device Serial Number is not working

Version 3



    Consider the following scenario:


    • RES ONE Workspace 10.1 is in use in combination with Microsoft Windows 8 or higher
    • Removable Disk Security is enabled
    • Removable Disks Read and/or Modify Access Permissions are configured
    • A zone based on USB storage device Serial Number rule is set as Access Control


    For some USB devices the serial number cannot be retrieved. An error is generated in the Workspace Analysis:


    Denied Access to Device "<DriveLetter>:" (VendorID#- 0000 Serial#-Device has no serial number.)
