Disallow locally attached storage as backup target

This policy setting allows you to manage whether backups of a machine can run to locally attached storage or not. If you enable this policy setting machine administrator/backup operator cannot use Windows Server Backup to run backups to a locally attached storage or disk. If you disable or do not configure this policy setting there is no restriction on locally attached storage or disk being backup target.
