Set time (in seconds) to force reboot

This policy setting configures the amount of time (in seconds) that the operating system waits to reboot in order to enforce a change in access rights to removable storage devices.

If you enable this policy setting, you can set the number of seconds you want the system to wait until a reboot.

If you disable or do not configure this setting, the operating system does not force a reboot.

Note: If no reboot is forced, the access right does not take effect until the operating system is restarted.

Supported on: At least Windows Vista
