hello, I have partitioned my system hard disk into 2: one is the boot partition where I have installed WinXP with SP3, Documents & Settings and Program Files.

The extended partition I have kept for my data.

I would like to restrict access of the (complete) extended partition ONLY to those who have administrator previlages on my WinXP.

I don't know if this is possible, but incase it's not, then I would like to configure some of the folders in the extended partition to be accessible ONLY to those with administrator privilages on my system.

How can I do this?

Regards.

In My Computer, right click the drive letter for the extended partition [probably D:], click Properties, click Security tab, then remove Everyone and Users, leaving only Administrators, System, and Creator Owner (and any other groups who need access).

If you are running XP Home, boot to Safe Mode first, as the Security tab is only visible in Safe Mode.
