In my old machine running Windows 2000 Pro, I restricted access to business and private or confidential material by locating that data in a particular partition and restricting access to those who had administrator authority. My desktop is used by all my children, hence the need for this measure.
I am currently setting up another machine running XP Pro SP3 and plan to use the same method for restricting access to specific partitions.
My question is how does one do this in XP Pro?

Go to my computer/tools/folder options
Under the View tab, untick 'Use simple file sharing'

Then you'll get the permissions tab as normal.
