ZCM 11.1 - Floppy drive is still visible, when a Storage Device Control Policy is in effect, which should disable it. 

Clicking on the icon for the floppy in Explorer gives the message "please insert disk into drive A:"


The policy is working; the floppy drive is disabled, no data can be read or written

Additional Information

Only the icon is displayed; the message from Windows is misleading.

See TID 7008315 Unable to disable floppy drive with Storage Device Control Policy for a problem that can occur with ZCM 11.0
