Hi

I have a some machines that a few users share and would like to write a script so that when a user logs on he/she will have access to their "My Documents" folder but at the same time will not have access to someone elses "My Documents" folder, need advice on how this could be done...

Thanks

By default when a user logs onto there machine on a domain only they will have access to there own my documents folder.

Provided you haven't
Given that user local admin rights.
and the machine was built with NTFS not fat so that you can asign user rights.

If the pc does not have NTFS as the file system go to my computer and right mouse click to see if it is FAt32 or NTFS just bring up a cmd box and convert c: /fs:ntfs and that should put secirity onto the machine and also reduce the amount of space used on the the HDD.
