However, I need to do this with a lot more eficieny!! I seem to go around in circles. Firstly I open 'my docs or my computer' then right click to go down to 'store & go' Fine......then the data is stored, However??? I was shown to click down on to something on the Right of the Screen,???? to check that the data has been stored (to verify)....not sure how to do this?? Secondly, I am supposed to 'free up space' on the stick before weekly back up???? - How do I do this???? Thirdly, each time I perform this task it seem to take light years to go through the process for one persons data???? Last week it regularly asked me to click 'Yes' not sure why, as this has not happened before? Certainly would appreciate (simply 'know how') on this topic. PLEASE NO COMPUTER JARGIN!!! Thanks heaps, as this is new tech. for me (simple as it is)- I only used to back up on the disks. regards KD

Hi tutcomp, from reading your troubles I think you will love Norton Ghost 14 program. As with any new program there will be a learning curve. The benefits will out way the price. Ghost compresses it's backups. You can set it to back any computer on a network & choose to back up the data incrementally. The cool things this program can do is great! When you read about Ghost you'll want it working for you. Down the road, I would suggest getting a large drive. Like a Seagate (five year warranty).
Than you will be able to back everyone up to one drive.
Click the link & check this out for yourself.

I have used lower versions of Ghost & it has saved my system more than once. Boot to the CD with network support & you can restore files over you're network. (The list goes on).

This should make your job much easyer.
Enjoy!

Mike

4. Type in the password once more for confirmation and click on the Ok button.
5. After you press the Ok button, this window will close without asking for further verification. Your Word 2007 document is now successfully encrypted. When you encrypt Word 2007 documents, Microsoft Office automatically saves the document with a 128-bit advanced encryption.


No-one can open this document without entering the password. If anyone clicks on the document to open it, he will be prompted to enter a password.

thanks....

You'll have to try to contact msn and see if they can reset your password. Sometimes waiting a few days will let the server reset the security from trying to login too many times. When was the last time you used the account?

How to Password Protect And Access a Password-Protected Word Document


How to Password Protect a Microsoft Word Document If you are working on documents that are important and shouldn’t be changed, then there is a way to password protect them so they cannot be changed except by you. You can also make the documents unavailable to open unless the person has the password as well.
Instructions
Things You’ll Need:
  • A Computer
  • Microsoft Office with Microsoft Word
  • Word Documents
  • General Knowledge of Microsoft Word
Step 1
Open Microsoft Word and open or create the document that you want to password protect.
Step 2
Click on “File” in the toolbar and select “Save As”.
Step 3
Click on the “Tools” menu and select “Security Options”.
Step 4
This will open a “Security Options” window. You may now set a password under the “Password to open” box, “Password to modify” box or both.
Step 5
Once you type in the password of your choosing you can opt to make the file “Read-only” by checking the appropriate box. You may then click “OK” to save your changes and then save your document as usual.
How to Access a Password-Protected Word Document Accessing a password-protected Microsoft Word document is only possible when you have the correct password that opens the document. Encryption and security levels differ for separate versions of Word. Microsoft 2007 doesn’t offer any solutions to allow a user to retrieve forgotten passwords and Microsoft does not allow its employees to help in retrieving or breaking passwords. If you do not have the correct password for the document, you will be unable to access it.
Instructions
Things You’ll Need:
  • Microsoft Word
  • Document password
Step 1
Navigate to the location on your hard drive where you stored the Word document.
Step 2
Double-click on the document to begin opening it. A separate window will appear that prompts you to enter the document password.
Step 3
Enter the password, which is case-sensitive.
Step 4
Click the “Open” button or hit the “Enter” key. If the password was correct, the document will open. If it was not correct, another window will display advising you the password was incorrect and prompting you to try again.
Tips & Warnings: Have you ever think of this situation, what if you forget the word password ? does that mean you’ll never regain the data in your word document, of course the answer is not , here is the solution for you to unlock password protection word document without data loss!
that is :Word Password Recovery 5.0, a simple tool for the easiest solution to Word password recovery. It recovers/removes the “Password to Open” and “Password to Edit” for you to view and edit the document freely. The direct download is available here. (25.1 MB)
By the way, there is a tool there called Password Recovery Bundle which including not only Word Password recovery 5.0 but also other programs that can recovery your windows password, office password as well as rar password, PDF Password, ZIP Password .

Sharing Your Own Computer's Stuff with the Network


To share a file or folder with your fellow computer users, move the file into your Shared Documents folder, which lives in your My Computer window. (You must move or copy a file into the Shared Documents folder; shortcuts don't always work.)

After you place your file or folder into your Shared Documents folder, it appears in the Shared Documents folder of everybody else using your computer.

Administrators can share folders without having to move them into the Shared Documents folder. The trick is to follow these steps:

1. Right-click on a folder you'd like to share and choose Sharing and Security from the pop-up menu.

Open My Computer and right-click on the folder you'd like to share. When the menu appears, select Sharing and Security. A window appears, showing the Properties for that folder. It opens to the Sharing tab.

Right-click on a folder and choose Sharing and Security to share the folder on the network.

2. Click the box marked Share This Folder on the Network.

A check mark in that box lets everybody peek at, grab, steal, change, or delete any of the files in that folder. To let visitors look inside the files but not change them, remove the check mark from the box marked Allow Network Users to Change My Files.

3. Click OK.

Now that particular folder and all its contents are available for everybody on the network to share.

Sharing a lot of folders isn't a good idea because it gives network visitors too much control over your computer. Even if you trust people, they might accidentally mess something up. To be safe, only share files by placing them in the Shared Document folder.

Inside Shared Documents live two more folders, Shared Music and Shared Pictures. Those two folders are also available to any user. So, if you want to share documents with any user of your computer, store them in the Shared Documents folder. When you make MP3s from your CDs, store them in the Shared Music folder, too, so that everybody can enjoy them.
