    I have 2 partitions right now, C and D. Can I make a partition E and make it password protected considering I have free space?

    if you have xp pro or 2000 then you can if not your fooked just go to folder options in CP and on the view tab uncheck the simple file sharing box then go to the drive and set permissions accordingly it wont set a password so people can still remove it and usse it in another box but thats what encryption is for if you do encrypt please please please back up the certificate so if you clean install then youll have no problems and wont lose a partition of data:)

    they are the certifiactes with the algorithm that the EFS uses to encrypt your files. search in xp help and support for backing up certificates:)

    Try to use some punctuation XP Abuser, that first post was really hard to read. Nice sig btw. :)

    ZAnwar:
    - Disable Simple File Sharing
    - Set the permissions on drive E: to only allow you (if that's what you want).
