What is the cause of policies showing up double in the GPO?

For example: You can see all policies as double entries on the right side!

figure 1.



After installing Removable Media 2.00, you can find a new SGuard.adm file in the adm folder.

If you import the new SGuard.adm file, you get double entries for the PrivateDisk policies because the SGPD_e.adm and the SGuard.adm file now have the same policy settings of PrivateDisk after installing SafeGuard RemovableMedia.

Please note:
The SGRM polices are only in the SGuard.adm but also include the PrivateDisk policies. The SP_e.adm contains only PrivateDisk policies.



Please open gpedit.msc and open "Add/Remove Templates".
Delete the SGPD_e and the double entries will be deleted.
