I've just reinstalled Windows XP Pro and updated to SP2. Now I don't have anymore access to some of my folders/files. I can't see the "Security" tab in properties neither. So how can I do to re-display this tab, and change permission (for many account) of my files.
PS: I'm using French version of Windows, in my own workgroup.

Hi pfiev,

You will have to disable simplified filesharing to see the "Security" tab.

Sorry for asking too soon. I've found the solution http://www.experts-exchange.com/Security/Win_Security/Q_21097049.html
Besides, windows shows an option "Simple fire sharing" outsize the View options before, but now it's only in the View options.
