secure usb mass storage vista

I have a external USB mass storage drive. This is a replacement. I say that because on the previous drive I had set up the permissions so that only I (the owner/administrator) could access it; other users were denied access to the drive.

I seem to have forgotten how I did that because I can't get it set up again on this new drive. :(

I did this before WITHOUT any 3rd party software. I want to do it again the same way.

I am using Vista Home.

Any ideas?

Right click on the drive in Computer Manager - go to the security Tab remove all the groups and add you to it. I would recomend that you use trueCryp instead.

While I couldn't find "Computer Manager" on Vista (I know it exists on XP), I went to the drive in Windows Explorer and did what you suggested and it worked. It's all set.

Thanks.

I'll also look into trueCryp.
