I've noticed on the computers at school (running winxp pro) that each folder has a 'tab' labeled 'security' in the 'properties' section when you right click on a folder. In there you can precisely define the permissions that each user has for that particular folder. I also am running winxp pro but do not have this option. Is there a way to enable this feature??
I am running ntfs... my drive is too big for fat32 anyway. I figured the only thing diff. btwn my comp and the school's is that they are on a domain and I am on regular network. Is there a way I can configure my pc to run as a domain server???
Go to any Explorer view. Click on "Tools" then "Folder Options". Click on the "View" tab. Scroll all the way down and untick "Use Simple File Sharing". Now you should get the "Security" tab in the file properties window.
Heh... Steve612, good one, didn't even think of that... it's part of my normal tweaking after installing Windows that I never bothered to think of the fact that it was also enabling the custom security.
