Hide external drive on network

  dobie2 15:12 30 May 2010


Looking for a solution to hide a drive on a networked PC. My main PC has an external drive. I want to share a directory on this drive with my Netgear media player in the bedroom, but to keep it hidden from my sons Networked PC in his bedroom. Can anyone help.

Love Debs

Sorry these solutions are not what i am looking for. The idea is to restrict a particular networked PC from seing a drive on the main PC.

Sorry Debs, don't know the answer to that one.

Turn off file and printer sharing on the PC who`s access you want to restrict and set it up with a limited account without access rights to change settings
