Why does it not let me make this or any of the other folders private? so that other people on the compter with other user accounts with limited access can not see these files?

Are you running a NTFS file system?

Look under my computer, c: dive, right click properties. it will tell you the format. if you are on ntfs, does your profile have administrative rights?

If you attempt to convert the partition from which the operating system is running. It is not possible to convert the boot partition while the operating system is running. To convert the boot partition, it will always be necessary to issue the CONVERT command, answer Yes to the prompt, and then restart the computer. The partition will be converted the next time the computer is restarted. As an alternative, it is possible to boot the computer to an installation of Windows on a different partition and convert the partition from that installation of Windows.

Yes, when you type CONVERT, you will be asked to reboot ... and the conversion will begin.

And no, all your data should remain intact. The backup is just in case.

there is a chance but most likely i wont???
I converted from fat32 to ntfs, no problem. backup just to be sure. you will be asked to reboot (I think) and it should not take too long (a few minutes).

Good luck, and let us know how it went (ie: if you can lock the folders).

Cheers, EJ :cool:
