    Hide Folders and or Drives (Office XP Pro)

    Hi

    I have set my granddaughter up as a user on my PC and I don't want her to able to access my work files or folders, Ideally I would like to Protect a drive where I keep all my files, this is a separate drive not a partition. But I would settle for protecting the folders.

    Thanks in anticipation

    Braddy,
    There is a utility called FreshUI ( which is <img src=/S/free.gif border=0 alt=free width=30 height=15> ). In it under Explorer>Drive settings, there is a setting to both restrict drive access and or showhide a drive from a particular user. It sounds like what you would like to do, so give it try.

    You can get it at FreshUI

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!
