Lock a partition


9 May 2008
Im selling my computer and im restoring it with the LEGIT Oem windows and drivers, when i bought it it had a recovery partition, im creating anew one, but want to know how to lock it


You can hide a drive and prevent access to its contents by doing the following in Windows Xp:
Goto Start--> Run. Type in "gpedit.msc" (Assuming you have xp pro)
Now in Group Policy Editor:
Goto User Configuration --> Administrative Templates --> Windows Explorer.
In the list Enable "Hide these specified Devices..." and "Prevent Access to drives.." and select your drive.

Although this setting will make your drive to appear locked; an experienced user might still be able to gain access to it!

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
