You need to be more specific. What operating systems are involve??? Is it a peer to peer or client server network??? On an NT or 2000 system you assing user rights and priviledges under user's accounts. It is not hard to limit access, it just depends on your set up!

I'll go on the assumption that since you posted this in the NetWare group, that this is what you want. To make a particular volume inaccessible, either set the trustee rights to none for [public] or whatever group you may have used to grant access, or remove them entirely. I would do this: Map a drive letter to the volume or directory to affect. Make that drive current. Issue the command: rights . none /name=[public] (or whatever groups are there). Issuing: rights . /t will tell you who had rights there to start with. In NetWare 4.x at least you can not remove rights from someone who is admin-equivalent.

Usually this is to make sure that deleting the volume won't cause huge problems. The easiest and fastest way to do that is go to the console of the server, and type DISMOUNT VOLUMENAME.

The volume is then completely inaccessable. If you need itback, it can be online in a matter of seconds by issuing the command MOUNT VOLUMENAME.


I usually wait 5-6 weeks before deleting a volume. That way you cover the whole month including a month-end. I'd also recommend several tested backups.
