    Hi,

    is there a way i can LOCK a folder from another user on XP pro (not just hide it)?
    eg only I (the administrator) can c and go into the folder and no other user (guest/other power user etc..).

    i know there r prg out there but can it b done without them?


    many thanks.

    If your hard drive is formatted as NTFS, you can use the security feature to set a password on it or deny other users from accessing it.
