You know how you can right click on a folder and go to the option to "Make this folder private" Thats all dim on mine, so i cant check it.. why is this? Is it that this feature is not avalible in XP Home.. if so why is it even there? HELP!

    The reason it is grayed out is because you must be running the FAT32 file system instead of NTFS. You must run the NTFS file system or you can't make folders private.
