    you can only make private folders/discs when they are NTFS :D

    you need ntfs for this but all you have to do is on your third hard drive right click and hit properties... then select the security tab and then remove all of the user accounts except for the one you use... or better yet if there is only a few other users add them in and set deny permissions to every thing on that drive
