7. Security Annoyances > FILE AND FOLDER SECURITY

FILE AND FOLDER SECURITY

USER-LEVEL CONTROLS IN WINDOWS 98SE/ME

The Annoyance:

I want to protect some of the folders on my Windows 98SE computer so that only certain users can access them. The Access Control dialog box offers the option of user-level controls, and has a field for entering the location of the user list. I’m not sure whether to enter the name of the computer or the name of a file. If it’s a file of usernames, how do I create it?

The Fix:

I’m assuming your network is a workgroup, not a domain. If you were running a domain (usually found only in business environments), the name of the domain would have been entered automatically in the “Obtain list of users and groups from” field (see Figure 7-7). For workgroups, only the share-level access control option is available.
