I am using windows XP professional. My children use the same machine, and they keep messing up with the machine and keep deleting my important files.
I just want to know if there is any way I can password protect one of the drives so that I can keep all my important data in it and password protect it. also please let me know if I can make that particular drive as write-protected.

Thanks in advance
