The new drive is a slave. I’ve gone to properties but can not check the box that says “Make the folder private.” Now what?

are you trying to do that on the root of the drive or a specific folder within the drive?

you're not trying to protect the whole disk or anything though (i.e. trying to do the whole d: drive or whatever letter you're using)

Ok I’ve got a local C drive and a local D drive. When I view properties on D, and go to sharing it says “ If you understand the risk but still want to share the root of the drive, click here.” Ok when I click on it, I now can see the check box that says “ Make this folder private!” but its faded and I still can’t check it. It also asks if I want to set it up as a network. Do I have to set this drive as a network first in order to check the box?
