Sharing files with XP Pro & security

  King Diamond 13:24 03 Mar 2003

Is there a way to share files so that only certain people on my home network can see them?

I want to be able to share various files with my laptop, so I do not want the kids to accidently delete or play about with them.

How do I get them to show on my main pc and not the kids.

3 pc's & 1 laptop, spare pc acts as a makeshift server. All pc's have XP pro installed with file and printer sharing enabled.

In options for the Folder when you click to secure it with a password select which people you want to allow access, if that is too difficult setting up Profile Policys, try password protecting the folder.

Right click on folder you dont want anyone else to view, click properties, then click Passowrd and Encryption then encryipt and password protect.

Hope this helps, Gaz.
