File Sharing
We've got two users on our computer, one ADMINISTRATOR and one STANDARD. All
the folders of both users are defined as NOT SHARED. Yet, both users have
free access to each other's folders and files. How come? What do we need to
do to exclude the other from accessing our files?

Thanks in advance.

Andy

Re: File Sharing
The "Not Shared" refers to the files and folders not being accessible to
other PCs on the network. What you want is to adjust access control and
permissions. Forexample, right-click on a folder and choose "Properties".
Look at the Security tab. There you can control who can do what to your
files and folders. But be careful if you are new at this...you might lock
yourself out of your own files if you do something wrong. Check out Help and
read up on it first.

Re: File Sharing
Thanks a lot, Tim. Now if I could only wrap my mind around what used to be a
simple concept under XP, I'd be home free.
