Protecting Individual folders.

By douglas.munyae ·
I have alocal PC being shared by four users.The PC is not connected to the network. each user is from a different department and does not want his data to be seen/accessed by the other users. How do i protect each users' folder?
Recently, one of myusers lost a folder in the PC, either it was deleted maliciously or accidentaly by his collegues sharing this Pc. How do i stop this?

I think you might need to provide more info on this problem, ie: What version of windows, what do you mean not connected to the network, are any of the computers?

But how I have read it, you could simple not sare the other computers hard drives or only give certain people permission buy implimenting a password for the share.

You could also try hiding the folder you don't want others to see and change the settings on the other computers to 'Don't show hidden/Sytem folders'.


HTH (although I may have understood your question wrong)

I don't know how many users you are talking about, but you could give each user a password protected sign on, and could further give each user a password protected "main" folder in which to use for all their work. This way only the user can access his/her own folder.
Good Luck!

if you have win98 machine u can right click on teh specific folder and go to customize the folder and click on html, there u can paste a peice of html code to bring up a password prompt to get into the file or mess with file. if ur using w2k u can use teh permissions and set it so each user has certain rights to each folder
if u need the html code u can email me i'll send it to ya or u can look online for html password codes
