Hi I hope someone can help.

My youngest son is stayin with me for a week, and I need to restrect access to my computers second hard drive.

When I add his account to XP, I know I can lock him out of my documents but can I restrict him from the D: drive?

I'm not sure how to go about this... but you could simply hide all of the main directories/files in D: drive (don't hide the subdirectories because it takes forever) :).

in My Computer Richt-Click on the D drive
Select Security

from there just remove the accounts (mostly the 'Everyone' account and the 'Users' account IIRC) that you dont want there. you can leave the Administrator account and the one you use when you log in.

Install gnupg and encrypt the whole thing. Not sure if that works with windows, though...

That's so unneccessary. This is his youngest son we're talking about, not some l33t hacker. Giving him a user-level account and removing user-level permissions from the drive should be enough.

And just in case you don't know (I didn't), you have to disable simpel file sharing first. Do that by going into "tools", "folder options", "view" and go all the way to the bottom.
