    How do I allow only certain computers on our network to access certain
    folders?

    I have my music folder that can be accessed by any pc on our network but
    wish to limit other folder to certain pc not all of them.

    Can anyone advise how I could do this ?

    Oh I have Windows 7 and the other pc's in the house are all Vista.

    Permissions in Windows are based on users, not computers. You have to create
    identical users with identical passwords on all the computers then give
    users permissions to shares based on who you want to access the shares.
