Lock a partition


May 9, 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!

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
