Hi pokladnik5,

Don't share anything without a password ;-)

You can restrict access to the floppy and CD-ROM drives in Windows XP Professional via the Local Computer Policy in the MMC (Click Start > Run > type GPEDIT.MSC > Go to Computer Configuration > Windows Settings > Security Settings > Local Policy > Security Options )

Turn off shares altogether, or hid them with the $ (dollar sign)
Or Make a new local user on your PC or server. Set a password that no one would know, don't use one of your current pass's just incase. Make sure that NewLocalUser is the only one with permission to that share or folder. You may want to allow System and or Backup operators access to back up your files.

If you want to connect to that share from another computer, and you get prompted for a user name and password, just the username and password, if that fails, try
PCname\NewUser
password

Just like you would with domain\user if prompted. If only one user (and the backup users) have right's to that file or share, then no one can copy the data in that folder or share, unless they know the username and pass.
GL!
