I have win7 64Bit and a SATA2. USB3.0 Extunale Hard Drive.


I have two accounts on my system.


An ADMIN account that I use all the time.


And a Limited account that everybody can use.


Can I set my system up where the people on the Limited account wont be able to Save and Open anything on the USB 3.0 Hard Drive?


I just want it to be for me and my ADMIN account.


Thank you for the time.

I take it your external drive is permanently connected to computer. You can hide it in folder options. If you want to hide the drive letter,
Open Control Panel > Appearance and Personalization > Folder Options > General tab in Folder Options.
Clear the Show drive letters check box, and then click OK.

Down in the bayou, Bubba called an attorney and asked, "Is it true they're suin' the cigarette companies for causing people to get cancer?
"Sure is Bubba. But why you asking?"
"Cause what I want to know is, I was thinking, can I sue Budweiser for all them ugly women I've slept with?"
