    XP Protected Folder

    ok in xp so u have a folder named "backup" you want to specify what user from the network can use it, and when its clicked it prompts the user for that name/pass and it doens't let them in less they know it, any ideas how to do it? I know i have done this on accident before. Me and cgawd alrdy discussed that we know how to do it in 98, but xp is different.

    Do you have NTFS? (how'd you do it in 98, btw? Folder level protection isn't available as part of the OS as far as I know)
    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]

    NTFS = 1;

    in win98 you can assign a password when u share it, nothing fancy.
