Question about Computers & Internet
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

select the sharing tab option then advanced sharing make sure you have a tick in the share this folder box

click start control panel administrative tools computer management disk management right click on your drive select properties click tools you should see click check now click start two boxes
automatically fix files and scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors place then a tick in both boxes then select check now start
you might tick one box then return after its finished the first repair then return and tick the second box you should not do anything while the chkdsk utility is in progress any input may damage this drive
then you restore it to its default status
Right click on usb drive select properties you will have an array of options
Select the hardware option then select your drive properties policies
Right click on your drive select properties then on customize restore Default in W 7
you might have to alternate doing this repeatedly until the problem is resolved
