    Today, I went to change the permissions on a folder i was gonna share accross my home network. Problem is I can't. The security tab is gone!!. I was using the Administrator account. And folder options -> view -> use simple folder options is unchecked.
    [​IMG].

    anybody know how to get the security tab back???

    thanks

    Wow odin, this is a nice trouble you have!
    Microsoft says that the security tab is not available in these cases only:
    1. File/folder is on a FAT volume
    2. You are using XP Home (you don't)
    3. You use simple file sharing (you don't)

    I can't believe you are trying to set security on a FAT volume... aren't you?

    Nope, its not a FAT volume. Both of my drives are formated with NTFS.

    thanks

    Open Windows Explorer,
    goto the tools menu -> Folder Options,
    Click the View Tab,
    In the Advanced Settings Window, make sure use simple file sharing is UNchecked.
