This policy allows you to specify devices by their friendly name to be excluded from being removed by the ghost device removal tool.
To use this policy setting, click Enabled and enter the friendly name of the devices you want to be excluded, separated by a semicolon “;”. For example: Citrix;Intel(R) HD Graphics 5500;Generic USB Hub.
This policy works by doing a partial text search. For instance, if you have the following devices:
Intel(R) USB 3.0 eXtensible Host Controller – 1.0 (Microsoft)
Mobile 5th Generation Intel(R) Core(TM) USB EHCI Controller – 9CA6
Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-5300U CPU @ 2.30GHz
Then putting “Intel” will match all three of these devices.
This policy requires the Ghost device removal policy to be enabled in order to function.
- If you disable this policy setting, or if you do not configure this policy setting, then the Ghost device removal will not filter by friendly name.
