Making Folders private from other accounts.

  soy 01:40 29 Jan 2004


I have just made a guest account on my XP home PC for anyone who wishes to use it when i'm away. Having teste dthe guest account, I noticed that all my work that was in 'My Documents' in my administrator account was still showing in the guest account.

I right Clicked 'My documents' folder and under sharing tab, theres and option to make the folder private but it is blanked out and not selectable.

Can anyone help me make this folder private so that is doesn't show in the Guest account?

PS, I have set up 'My documents' target as a whole partition. I have multiple paritions on my hard drive and made one 20GIG partition the 'My documents' folder.

Your admin account has to have a password.

After this... Go to C:\ > Documents and Settings > Right click your name > Sharing & security > Make folders private.

Is your hard drive formatted with FAT32? If so, the option is not available.
