Block user's acess to partition on Windows 7

October 1, 2012 3:14am CST
Hi! I share the same computer with my brother and I have a partition that I would like to block. Can you give me some tips about how can I do it? I have searched on google but I didn't found anything related to Windows 7. Thanks!

The simplest way will be to create a new account from control panel,and control the other account as a administrator...

This is very easily done. Simply create separate accounts (password protected) for you and your brother. Your account should have administrative rights (or you should have access to the Admin account as well) and your brother's account should be a Standard User account. Once you have two accounts, you can control access to files, folders and partitions as an Admin. If you have not set up any accounts, you are both accessing the same user space with Admin rights and that means that anyone can do anything on your PC.
