File sharing issues
I have a home network, desktop and laptop, both running XP Pro SP2.Both
machines have 3 users.
This is my problem: I want to see my documents on both machines over the
network, so i set the folders to 'share on network'. I can now see laptop
docs from desktop and vice-versa. However, if someone else logs on, because
my docs is a shared folder, others can also see my files.
Can you please tell me how to set up so that my docs is shared, but only
visible to me. Do I have to set permissions somewhere in the hidden depths
of Windows? Any help would be appreciated.

Maybe these two MSKB articles may help. Note that you must have your drives formatted in NTFS.
