Hi Sumit

I wonder, why do you need to exclude the "Human Interface Device" class  in this example ?

Blocking device ID "USBSTOR*.* or "USBSTOR*" should not block mouse nor keyboard, bacause mouse/keyborard Device IDs don't begin with string "USBSTOR", nor contain such a string.

Have you ever met problems without this exclusion ?
What SEP version it was ?

Hi, I am interested in why you used USBSTOR*.* over just using USBSTOR* as your wild card?

It will block only USB bluetooth, to block the internal bluetooth you can add the different Device Id, I will share you earlier.
