Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

Local sharing and security.

\015 In my laptop I have partioned the disc space into 3 drives. For any of the drives when I right click and go to properties and to the sharing tab, then in the Local sharing and security section I see the ''check box for the make this folder private'' being greyed out.How to selcet this box?where in registry to make changes?plz help? I guess if I make 2-3 user accounts then by checking this option I can prevent the guests to view my private hard drives.\015

Answers :

If you only have one user account, then they're all private. If you create a second user account, or if you join a network or a domain, then you will have the option of making the folder private, provided you have turned on File and Printer sharing in Windows
