First, make sure you have a password when you login to your computer.

Right click the folder you want to protect.
Click "Properties"
Click "Sharing" tab
Place a check mark on the box that says "Make this folder private"
Click "Apply"

If you don't have a password assigned to your account, there will be a popup box that will ask you to assign one. It must be done if you want to make the "Folder" private, Click "Yes". You will then use the password when you logon to your computer.

To confirm it, Click the "Create Password" button and close the password window. Click OK.

The password will then be asked eveytime somebody tries to access your private folder.

Hi, I have two pc running with windows xp operating system. From User 1 i need to access user 2 windows folder and program files folder otherway around also but I can't how? Even if I shared windows folder...


First thing Windows XP Home Edition will give you numerous problems when sharing files, you should consider using windows XP Pro for that sort of operations.

Assuming you have Windows XP Pro installed in both computers:

1 - Create the same user on both computers ( same account name, same password ) blank passwords are not allow between file sharing as per windows xp group policy.

2 - Create a resource to share ( example: C:\)

3 - Disable simple file sharing

* go to control panel
* click on folder options
* click the VIEW tab
* unckeck the use sharing wizard

4 - Make sure that the user that will be used for authenticating between computers have the proper NTFS permissions and the proper access to the shared sources.

5 - Try to connect to the shared sources when asked for username and password type the credentials of the newly created user.

Now you should be able to connect to the shared sources both ways.

Password on shared documents on a workgroup


Password Protect Folders in XP
To password protect a folder built into Windows XP (for other Windows flavors, there are some freeware/shareware programs out there).
If you have a log in password for your account, this can be used to protect folders from other users. If not, you need to creat one. Your hard drive must be formatted using NTFS (which it probably is unless you're dual booting with another operating system). Here's what to do...
Right-click the folder that you want to make private and choose "Properties" (or Alt+Double-click). Go to the "Sharing" tab and check the "Make this folder private" box.
private-folder1.jpg
Click Apply . If you do not have a password on your account, a box will pop up asking if you want to assign a password. This must be done if you want to make the folder private, so click Yes . You will need to use your password to log on to your computer from then on.
Type in a password then confirm it. Click the "Create Password" button then close the Password window.
Click OK in the Properties dialog box.
Now anyone else logged on to your computer can't access that file without knowing your password.
