WinXP users drive & partition access rights

is it possible to restrict drive or folders access rights to different winxp users logging into the system. can i restrict them from deleting or modifying any files in a specific drive or folder.
i have ntfs file system on the partition where xp is installed and user accounts r installed. but any user can access all my drives and partitions. how can i restrict it? is it possible without any third party software


Tweaking Monkey
Ya you just need to disable "Simple File Sharing" to se ethe advances security settings. You can get that option in the Folder Options control panel.

Just a hint, if you ever lock yourself out, you can get back access by changing the Ownership back to yourself.

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
