Default External Drives

Hi All,

1) I have a 320 GB external drive, split in two A+B drives, when I open the main drive via password and then connect to the net will the contents of the drives be accessible by other computers, can other computers see the contents of the drives, and if so what are the steps to allow me to use the drives online and at the same time stop intruders from amending, deleting or even viewing my private files.

2) The A drive is to be soley for MS Flightsim 2004, if the drive is to be closed from time to time via password will I face tech issues and internal system configuration problems? What is the best way to load FS2004 into one of my external drives to avoid sys conflicts? Will it be necessary to load the FS04 into my C drive also?

All good advice welcome.

In a learning world
