file and folder security in xp home

  baron_wasteland 13:30 21 Apr 2009

i would like to protect files and folders on an xp home network so that other users cannot access ideally password restrict opening folders via the network
i realise that this is virtually impossible without a a server using standard MS software XP Home
I have tried various proprietary products but cannot find anything that fits the bill - most seem to hide which is not what i am looking for i wanna see but restrict opening to a password option
can anyone help please

Sorry to say that you can only do simple file sharing (no password or user control) in XP home. If you have XP pro, you can share file with user/group permission click here .
