    Hello,

    I am trying to keep (Documents and Settings) folder on Host machine from
    being accessed by client computers on the network, but still want to allow
    other folders on C: to be shared. How can this be achieved?

    I was thinking that instead of sharing the entire C: drive, just set the
    individual folders as shared instead. Would that work?

  2. Hi
    Sure it would just right click on the folder and set it up.
    Actually sharing drive C:\ as a whole is a Bad idea to begin with.
