Re: Making File Folders Unsearchable
If your hard drive is formatted with NTFS you can easily prevent certain users from viewing your files.
If you do:
First, make a user for people staying at your house. This can be done through the control panel -> users accounts/something similar.
Put all the files you want private in one folder under your username.
Right click the folder, and click properties.
Go to the security tab, and for any user besides the one you use, check all the deny boxes.
Check to make sure the changes worked by logging in with the username you created for your guests and trying to access your private files.
Alternatively, you can download WinRAR, and compress all your files within a password protected folder.
If you have any questions feel free to ask.
