Local sharing and security.

In my laptop I have partioned the disc space into 3 drives. For any of the drives when I right click and go to properties and to the sharing tab, then in the Local sharing and security section I see the ''check box for the make this folder private'' being greyed out.How to selcet this box?where in registry to make changes?plz help? I guess if I make 2-3 user accounts then by checking this option I can prevent the guests to view my private hard drives.

If you only have one user account, then they're all private. If you create a second user account, or if you join a network or a domain, then you will have the option of making the folder private, provided you have turned on File and Printer sharing in Windows

When my laptop is running out of disc space, how do I go about to get more disc space?


You can either clean the hard drive of files you dont need to an external drive. Also if you right click properties on your C Drive you will see disc clean up run that and check all the boxes that will free up some space. Also checkout a program called CCleaner which will remove a fair amount of your browsing data which can be 1 - 2 GB depending how often you use the internet.

My compaq says the E disc space is full, I've tryed to empty some. I can't. Is there a way to put it on disc C? Also, My windows security seems to have tripled. Can I remove some of those? Thanks


Have you tried to compress old files?

Go to my computer - right click the E: Drive and choose properties.

Hit the Disk Cleanup button - when it appears tick the compress old files option. This can free up a lot of space by compressing files you have not accessed in a long time.

Printing from a laptop


you'll need to share the printer on the desktop then add new printer on the laptop (when adding new printer you'll need to seach for network printers).
Prerequisite of this is that both machines are in the same workgroup and that file and printer sharing is on on both machines

Cannot download norton security 2008. i get so far into download and then message appears to say not enough free space on my D:/ drive.... Tried to free some space but doesn't seem to have made any...


1. right click on C: Local Disk ( your C drive )

2. click properties

3. look at the amount of used space in blue , and free space you have in pink

to free up more hard drive space

Go to the add/remove programs in control panel

Look for programs that you don't need and uninstall them.

then run the windows disk clean up utility.

Local Disk(D:) is not accessible Access is denied


This occurs when the drive was taken from a PC where someone made the drive un-shareable.
The fix in XP:
1. Turn off Simple File Sharing, via Explorer, Tools, Folder Options, View, (NOT) use Simple File Sharing.
2. Now when you right click the drive letter for the drive on the new PC you will see a Security tab (made invisible by Simple File Sharing).
3. On the Security Tab, add yourself or any user, and grant Full Permission.
4. Now you can Explore the drive like any other.
