Blocking a folder with admin rights

February 23, 2009 at 03:08:52
Specs: Windows XP Pro
Ive got admin rights and so does the second user,I know with admin rights you can see peoples folders but thats the thing i dont want to see the second users my documents folders,It would be easier if we didn't have admin rights but we both need them,Im pretty sure the second user could block me from seeing their folders because there is alot of options in the secruity tab when i right click on folders.

Thanks in advance

Thanks but no thats not really a option im sure the other user wouldn't want that,I dont think he has a removable storage device,There must be a way he can set something so i cant see his folders when im on my account.

He can set permissions to prevent you from accessing. Just because you have the ability to look at the documents doesn't mean you need to look at them. Just concentrate on your own work.

Thanks

Yes you are right there is no need for me to look at his documents,But he wants total privacy just incase someone else looks at his documents as i do have some other people who use my account.

Please could you tell me how you set permissions so he can block me from seeing his documents.

Best practices would be to not share your account login with anyone else.
