How to Set Advance User Permissions

March 25, 2016 at 11:43:04
Specs: Windows Vista
This might be more advance than I have tried before with user permissions.

On a Vista desktop, I have two external drives. What I like to do is have an account that has:

> No access to certain folders on C:.
> No access to external A.
> No access to all folders, but say one or two, on external B.

Possible? If software is needed, only full freeware please.

Thank you.

I reply as fast as I can, but it could be hours or months.

You can do that with the Permissions built in to Windows.

Just right-click on the drive or folder you want to restrict access to >>
Click Security tab, click Edit.

Bear in mind that the external drive B will need to be formatted with the NTFS file system.
