Is there a way to Password Protect the USB Ports in Windows 8 so that every time a USB is inserted a prompt comes out asking for a password before it can be used on the PC ? Is this possible without 3rd party software ? Can it be done in Windows Group Policy ? If not i would like to hear suggestions about good 3rd party software.
Group Policy Solution
In Computer Configuration → Administrative Templates → System Removable Storage Access when enabling the policy
All Removable Storage Classes: Deny All Access, my PC stops unauthorized access for all USB ports and all removable storage. That is what I actually wanted, but it is annoying that every time I want to use a USB port I have to open my Group Policy and disable the Removable Storage policy. A Prompt asking for administrator rights or a password prompt would be much better.
