First make sure you are using ntfs file permissions on that computer - select the
drive/properties and the file system will be listed. You can convert fat32 to ntfs in
you need to. --- Steve

Hi,

Security tab only appears if partition / hard drive is formated with NTFS
not FAT or FAT32. If you need to change this, format your partition or hard
drive with NTFS.

I hope this helps,

Mike
