Specs: Windows 2000, 2 gig / 500 mb
I am looking for some options here. I have a windows 2000 machine on the network, which I plan to put some important data on. The problem is I do not want other users to snoop around and access the data. I am using permissions and have also hid the server from network neighborhood, but what other steps can I introduce in order to protect the shared folder from data theft or unwanted snooping?

If you've set permissions properly that's all you need to do. Your setup makes me ask why you're using it as a file server if you don't want people accessing it?

I think 2K is still a bit un-secure. Get all the last service packs and disable guest account. I forget all the other ways to secure it.

"Best Practices", Event viewer, host file, perfmon, antivirus, anti-spyware, Live CD's, backups, are in my top 10

I want some people to access the files, but not everyone.

Thanks for the help though. Yes, I have disabled the guest account and updated the patches.

Reckon any good firewalls that can help block local IPs?
