hi ! this is for those who might not be aware of this already ( in simple words newbees ) :p

today a noob asked me on yahoo that how to simply stop someone from accessing a particular drive or folder ! without setting up parental controls on their User Account !

Well the first thing i said was to have Parental Controls Setup ! he said it might be that my parents access the Drive and they think that i hae some Adult natured Content ! :D

So the Best thing to do is to Go to the Properties of that particular Driver lets say X: or a FOLDER Y , Just click on its properties and go to Security Tab, click on the USER want to set the permission of and click Edit ! Set the permission level as you want like Read only Etc etc.. :)

these pics might help :p

Now, only if this permissions could be exported to a registry file. Would have been quick way to reapply the permissions after a reinstall.
