Hiding a folder for standard users only...is this possible?

Post by QWNoZX » Mon, 07 May 2007 02:48:01


I have 4 accounts made - 1 Admin and 3 Standard/Limited User. They all use
the data drive on D: but there are a few folders in there that I don't want
the 3 standard users to see that it's in there.

Is there a way of getting rid of the folders in their view (without manually
hiding them because we actually need the show-hidden-files option to be on)??
Was hoping there may be an account-related resolution to this.

Many thanks in advance!

I think you'll have to use NTFS permissions to block the standard accounts
from accessing it.

Use permissions, this is exactly what they are used for.
The drive needs to be formatted as NTFS though.
