Sharing of files and folders can be managed in two ways. If you chose
simplified file sharing, your folders can be shared with everyone on
your network or workgroup, or you can make your folders
private. However, in Windows XP Professional, you can also
set folder permissions for specific users or groups. To do this, you
must first change the default setting, which is simple file sharing.
You can set file and folder permissions only on drives formatted to use
NTFS, and you must be the owner or have been granted permission to do
so by the owner.
To change the XP default setting, follow these steps:
- Open Control Panel, click Tools, and then click
- Click the View tab, and scroll to the bottom of the Advanced
- Clear the Use simple file sharing (Recommended) check box.
- To manage folder permissions, browse to the folder in Windows
Explorer, right-click the folder, and then click Properties. Click the
Security tab, and assign permissions, such as Full Control, Modify,
Read, and/or Write, to specific users.
