This action is suitable if the administrator only wants to protect the device from virus or malware that could be in the removable storage.
Deny read access: Device will totally block all users from reading contents in the removable storage. It also effectively prevents users from transferring anything from/to the removable storage. Administrator can use this if they want to completely restrict the usage of removable storage.
Deny write access: Device will prevent all users transferring anything to the removable storage, but not the other way around. Users will still be able to read contents in the removable storage.
