Stupid Question About Configuring Device Control

I need a solution

I learned long ago to never assume…so…

If I want to block USB devices I can add the USB class in Blocked Devices, right?  Then, if I want to allow certain USB devices (such as human interface devices and individual USB devices) I can add those in Devices Excluded From Blocking. Right?  Devices Excluded From Blocking will override the Blocked Devices class. Right?  

Thanks.

How to recognize “USB attached SCSI” removable USB device

I need a solution

Hi Guys,

I know we can determine if the device is a USB storage by the DeviceID under USBStor tree. but currently our USB devices are recognized as USB attached SCSI in device manager on windows10, it shows up a SCSI device, i need to know how we can add UASP device to USB removable USB device. Does UASP device have a special Device ID or Class GUID.

Thanks for your help.
