Re: please help me about dlp agent

Have you tried contacting your administrator?  They put DLP on there for a reason - to stop users from using the CDRom to write company data and carry it home or plugging in USB devices, copy company data and taking it home. 

It would not be proper in an ethical sense to put out information to bypass a product that most of us use to protect the networks we manage.  Please try contact your ePO team and find out if they mistakenly applied a DLP policy to your machine first.  If not, then you can discuss their policy on DLP on company computers.
