You can also hide hard drives and/or partitions from other users/profiles.
As for sharing with a password:
To Set the My Documents Folder to Private
On the Start menu, right-click My Documents, and then click Properties.
Click the Sharing tab, and then click to select the Make this folder private
so that only I have access to it check box. Click Apply, and then click OK .
Note: You cannot make your folders private if your drive is not formatted
Home Edition: Set Permissions for Shared Files and Folders. Boot into safe
mode and logon to the 'Administrator' account. Right click the folder in
question/Sharing and Security/Make Folder Private.
To view the Security tab for a file or folder in XP, hold down the Ctrl key
while right-clicking the file or folder, and select Properties. If you are
in a domain instead of a workgroup, this approach is unnecessary.
