I know this is pretty sorry, but I don't know how to do it. I want to hide the contents of my C: drive from limited accounts. The contents are hidden by default, but any user can easily show them. I want the limited accounts to still be able to use the programs on the drive, but I don't want them to browse through C: on their own free will. How can I hide the contents of my C: drive from limited accounts?

Thanks,
Nathan

Sorry, I don't know of any way to do this in XP home, it lacks the encryption of Pro. You'll probably have to resort to a third party program.
