My last thread was deleted for some reason.
PLEASE let me just clarify what im asking.

2 accounts on 1 PC.

I CAN ACCESS, my mums account files.

MY MUM, cant access mine!

this should be the other way round, she wants to access mine, and she doesnt want me to access hers.

ITS MY FILES that are private, and i actually remember setting mine to private somehow, i dont know how to turn this off for me, and put it ON for my mum, she likes her privacy and has asked me to post on here to find out how.

I suggest you get your mum to register and ask the question.

You can only make your files private if you set a password on the account.

Under Control Panel\Users, select the account you want private and click Set Password. Set a password and then on the next screen select Make Files Private.

On the other account (the one where the files are not to be private) - click to remove the password. Then, if you still want a password on the account but the files to be accessible - re-set a password and click No on the next screen.

If we posted how to get round security in an open forum, people with few scruples could use it to access and do damage / infringe other people's PCs and personal data.

maybe you have set file sharing to off in your account? I think that's the problem.

If you knew what you were doing you wouldn't be asking this question.

As €dstowe says. If you knew what you were doing you wouldn't be asking this question.

How about eating Humble Pie and starting again?

Look for the checkbox on the properties palette of your named folder in Documents and Settings. This is the highest-level folder that can have privacy enabled.
