    wot windows you running? if it xp goto user accounts click on yours and make ya files etc private and enable password etc, not sure if it hides them completley but they wont be able to open them. if you worried if they porn(no offence ) just rename them to something uninteresting like "film of my garden" or something.

    I suppose you could password/encrypt the directory and/or files.

    You could also put the files on a removable hard drive / zip drive / floopy.

    in xp you can also right click on your folders in "my docs" then click "sharing and security" and tick the box that says make this folder private. should then be invisble to other acc users.

    oh and you cant do this if you not formatted ya drive to ntfs for some reason, i think its got something to do with the fact that fat32 cant be encrypted or something but cant be certain.

    u running winME? if it xp you can convert drive from fat to ntfs without losing files etc its painless.



    To convert a volume to NTFS from the command prompt
    Open Command Prompt.
    In the command prompt window, type
    convert drive_letter: /fs:ntfs

    For example, typing convert C: /fs:ntfs would format drive C: with the ntfs format.


    To open command prompt, click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, and then click Command Prompt.
    You can convert FAT or FAT32 volumes to NTFS with this command.

    remember to type it exactly ie spaces where they should be etc
