Hi
I am starting to set up my user accounts for the computer, and i want to make it so that each user cannot access the "My Documents" of any other user.
I have tried going through Documents and Settings and right clickin on the Individual Document Folder to set the Access Right, but the checkbox (to turn this feature on) is not active...How do i activate it.

By not active meaning that when i click it it doesn't change the box

Cheers

Open explorer .. then go to tools ...... folder options .... Click the View tab .... SCroll down and uncheck "Use simple file sharing"

:)

also a great tool is the Group policy tool go to RUN and type

gpedit.msc

Have a look in there some cool stuff

I am using Windows Xp Home Edition.

Any other ideas

I don't think you can secure your folders on a non-NTFS windows partition.... without any third-party software that is...
