Windows XP 64

I have searched and searched.

I have two disc drives, both partitioned into two drives each. In other words, My Computer shows 4 drive letters.

XP is on my C drive. I know how to make my folders private on this drive.

How do I make other drives or folders on other drives private?

It should work the same on any drive that is formatted with the NTFS file system (right click on the folder and select "Sharing and Security")
If the drive is formatted with FAT32, then you can't do it there (although you can use the convert command to convert the drive to NTFS).
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
