Hello, I need some help. I think I may have messed up some folder access permissions between my two user accounts on my laptop. I have two user accounts: Owner & Personal
Owner is being used for everything, while Personal is now being used for gaming/torrenting.
My father likes to use my computer fairly often now and I dont want him to be able to snoop around all my folders on both accounts. Both accounts are adminstrators and are password protected. I tried to change permissions myself and messed some things up. Now my Owner user account cannot access the Personal user folder. It says access denied and to see the security tab of the folder. Can anyone help me fix what happened and try and do what I was wanting to do. I have seen it set up on one of my friends computers how he was able to lock his user folders but still access them from opposing user accounts via entering the password when it was prompted, similar to inputing the password into UAC window when you want to change things.....

Thanks for the help!!!!

lol that method you linked to isnt secure at all..... anyway, what I saw was something similar to if you are trying to access files from a computer on a network. a username/password required to view content and make changes
