I have a Home Network with 3 computers wired by ethernet and a variety of wireless devices that connect from time to time, including Macbooks and Windows laptops. Of the 3 wired computers, mine dual boots to Win XP Pro and Win 7 (64-bit), and the other 2 run Win XP Home. One of the Win XP Home computers has a folder on it that has important data that I need to have full access to from my computer, but I need to otherwise limit/deny access by others, including the other Win XP Home computer and all the wireless devices.
Through Safe Mode w/Networking, I was able to grant permission to the entire Network for full access to the folder, but I cannot figure out how to limit it to only me. When I was in Permissions, it wouldn't let me choose a specific computer (i.e. Location) in the network, nor did I see a way to password the folder.
I know I could move the folder to my computer and grant access to the one Win XP Home computer user, but for reasons that would be too lengthy to explain here, I prefer not to do it that way.
Is there a way to accomplish what I'm trying to do?
