Dear friends.
I have built in another disk drive. I like the privacy in the my documents folder, preventing the many users on my computer from spying in. Now I transfer my files to this newly installed drive that is a slave to the other drive. How can I prevent them from reading everything in my folders on the new drives.
can I password protect those directories on the drive? How? Or even better: can I make those directories accessible only to my password?

thanks

Johan

What OS, what file system, eg: FAT32, NTFS, EXT3?

You can change the folder that My Documents points to or the location of the folder itself but will need to know the above info.

thanks Murray,

making the folder that My Documenmts points to sounds like the optimal solution, but can't figure it out.
I use XP professional (incl the SP2 update) and the file system is NFTS.

Thanks for your help
