    I just upgraded to XP Pro about a week ago. I want to essentially lock a hard drive when all other users but myself get onto my computer. I have 2 HDs (1 NTFS, 1 FAT32) both have 2 partitions (4 total). I would really like to make them not even appear on the limited users screen so that they cant get to them at all. Also I would like to know how to do this with a specific folder.

    If you are using NTFS you can just go into the security permissions and remove all accounts but your own. Then only way to access them is when logged in under your name and password.

    If you turn off "Simple file sharing", you get a lot of options that you could use.
    Open Explorer. Tools>Folder Options>View
    Scroll to the bottom and uncheck "Use Simple file sharing"

    FolderGuard is a good app., lets you hide, limit to read only or deny access to folders AND drives.
