    if i answer no then i must be using ext3 for Windows :wink:
    dat poll question has no meaning.

    da :?: shuld be What file system u use for Windows XP ?
    -> FAT32
    -> NTFS

    If u r da admin and u have limited user accounts on ur PC then simply select ur folder in X:\Documents and Settings--> right click and select properties-->click sharing tab-->and select make this folder private.

    u can use hide folders or secure files or fileprotect to protect ur files.

    wait for other replies which might give u more info.

    Hi Mask

    How about by clicking the on either the Yes/No radio button and pressing submit. :D

    On a serious note. It looks like the poll is for knowing whether you are using FAT32/NTFS or any other file system. If you use either of the filesystem then answer yes otherwise if you use any other File system then answer no.
