Hi,

Is it possible to have all the user folders from C:\Documents and Settings
in a 2nd hard drive (d:)  and still have permissions enabled? So that I can
reformat my windows xp anytime without having to worry about all user the
files being deleted.

I can easily transfer all the user documents to the other drive, however,
anyone can access anyone's folder and files.

I dont want to use a 3rd party software to do this. any advise?

Thanks,
Eric

You can copy and paste the entire directory to your "D" drive.
After reformatting your "C" drive you'll need to get permission to
access the files again to restore then back to the "C" drive.
Write down the below URL (website) on a piece of paper so you can
access it for the info:

Hi,

You dont understand the question. I dont have problems opening the files.
What I want is to have a single drive for all our documents and files
separate from the windows OS itself, in this case drive d:. I want each user
to have its own folder in drive d: But they should only have access to
his/her own folder.
