Hello all. i need a lil help. i have been googling and googling for over 3 hours now with not much luck. I have a file server at home sorta speak. I have a win xp machine at home. i think it is home edition. not sure. cant remember. haha. anyway. i have 4 drives in the machine. each one has a folder under it named netdrive. they are shared folders. Then my wifes laptop, she has the drives mapped to her laptop so she canstore her files. She asked me if it was possible to password protect the folder. I cant seem to figure out how to do this. i even tried third party softwares but they all will not protect network drives.
I tried to make a .zip wioth a password and then everytime she wants to save something she has to add it to the archive and then re-password protect that. haha
to much work. I dont want the folder to ask for her windows password, i want her windows account name and password seperate from the protected folder.
how would i accomplish this?
