Block local user from accessing folder

Q: Block local user from accessing folder

My brother has a 2tb hard drive in his computer and he barely uses any of the space in it. So I shared a folder from his computer, and then mapped that folder to mine. I use to this for storage purposes. I was wondering if there was a way from preventing my brother from being able to open this folder if he were to find it on his computer. I'm running win 8 and he's running win 7.

Preferred Solution: Block local user from accessing folder

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I have several user accounts on a Windows 7 Machine.

What I want to do is deny access, or better yet hide the folders (even if show hidden files and folders is enabled) to certain folders for only one specific user.

How would I go about this?


A:block user from accessing folder(s)?

Hello Inepoe888 and Welcome to BC,

The only way I know of to be able to do what you are asking is by setting group policies. This is somewhat advanced, and usually done by IT tech's / admins, however if you Google "group policies Windows 7" you can find out a great deal about what it is, and if this is something you feel comfortable doing.

Couple of things worth noting:

1) Only works on Windows 7 Ultimate, Professional, or Enterprise to my knowledge. Will not work on Home Premium versions.

2) Must be admin.

Good Luck!

My brother wanted to play a game on my computer, so I created an account. I have private files under C:\Users\Jason (Me) and I don't want him to access them. If I right click "Jason" and choose "Properties," I go to security. There is where the problem comes in.
I don't see his name listed.

Jason (Jason-PC\Jason)
Home Users (Jason-PC\Home Users)
Account Unknown ( Random words and numbers )
uuid: 1000000-0000-0000-0200-001DD8 *ECT*
Administrators (Jason-PC\Administrators)
Users (Jason-PC\users)

What do I edit so my brothers account *Steven* won't be able to access my files under C:\Users\Jason?

I have an Administrator account. Now i want to create another user account so that others can use my laptop through that account. I want to restrict those users in accessing my documents,folders,files etc and limiting them to certain programs only. I guess this is what is called Setting 'Permissions'.

I created a non-administrator account in Windows 8 for family members.
I want to restrict access to specific folders.
In Windows explorer, I right click properties on the folder, go into the security settings,
but it's not clear what I need to do. Highlighting "users", I attempt to deny access but I get a warning
that seems to be communicating that it would also block admin access to that particular folder.

A:changing user/local folder location

Is this for a backup? Because if it's not, you shouldn't move these folders from there current location, there's a reason why there hidden.

Also, even if you do move this folder, Windows 7 would recreate it the next time you logon. Unless you create a shortcut to the new location of these folders in your current AppData folder.

And you can move the folders but it would require you to do so in such a way that you did not use Windows, because that is the service that is using the files that you are trying to move. The computer would have to be either logged off or shut down when the files were being moved, which would require another operating system or even computer.

Hi all. I have this problem: every time the Windows 8 starts it seems that i loose the permissions to the temp folder. As a result some applications using that folder to launch (for example Google drive) fail giving me an error. Another example are some installation files not starting because the temp folder cannot be used.
So, i have always to go to temp folder and manually set the permissions to have all working.

What can I do?
Thank you

A:Set permissions to \<user>\AppData\Local\Temp folder

So, I googled your problem and it appears that others are experiencing a similar issue and the common denominator appears to be an Adobe Acrobat product. So, you might want to check out these links if you have Acrobat installed:

Hi Ari94,

Temporary folder is a directory used to hold temporary files. Many operating systems and some software automatically delete the contents of this directory at boot-up or at regular intervals.

You can delete the files from Temp folder. There would be certain files which may not be deleted, this is happens when the files are in use. Please follow detailed instructions to delete the Temp folder: Temporary Files - Temp Folder

Please revert back for clarification.

A:Sync local folder on office pc w/ local folder on Surface Pro???

I would agree that having a cloud storage would be nice should the office server go down. You do know that you don't have to sync the entire share folder and programs right? You can sync just individual files that are actually being used and changed. As far as extra storage goes, no need to tote around an external HD. Why not get a couple USB 3.0 flash drives or sdcards? And I really do mean get 2-3, just in case one should fail you have some kind of a backup. You can never rely on a single backup.

Say for an example, i like a really nice piece of software but, it phones home for a checkup everytime i use it. I'd prefer to do the checking manually and the application has no need for the network other than for updates (kinda like acrobat reader).

A twist on the creation of user folders on a drive other than C: in Win 7 Ultimate. Does anyone know if one could designate a user folder location such as E:\Data instead of using the users name and being a subdirectory of "Users". I am the ONLY one on my computer - and it would seem much easier to look to the top folder in the E drive than clicking thru E:, users, name, documents, project. I fully realize that I can set up shortcuts, but when you are in an application that wants to place a file somewhere else and presents you with an explorer windows it is a pain. The only method I thought of is using redirection with symbolic links. Every time I try to use symbolic links, I end up with something other than I anticipated.

I have two network cards that connect to two different networks. The first network only should communicate with the computers on the local network and the second should be used to connect to the internet.

How do I force the computer to use a given NIC for internet access and the other for local file sharing etc?

A:Block NIC from internet access but not local network

Instead of two nics for access to different networks and functions, would it be easier to have just one nic if you could find something that restricted all network traffic allowed in/.out of the NIC so it would only talk to networks you want and use remote services you want, etc.

Would that fill the need? You need one NIC and a firewall.

The above is a bit confusing. Is this computer joined to a work domain or is it not?

If this is a domain computer, the user will have to use the classic log on screen (Ctrl+Alt+Delete), not the Welcome Screen. If he wants to switch to logging in to the Local computer account and not the domain, he'll have to "Switch User" then log in with the format of Computername\User Name

My grandmother was recently hacked and she changed all her passwords herself (yay!). However she did not write down her new local user account password for her laptop.

I have a laptop running Windows 7 and I'm unable to access my local network, despite every indication that my device is finding the signal, which is designated as excellent. After attempting to connect, I am eventually told that the connection attempt was unsuccessful, but at the same time my computer indicates that I do, in fact, have "limited access." Perplexing me further, my network is also being denoted as an "unidentified network."

Any feedback would be appreciated.

A few months ago I had my computer reformatted and when it came back I noticed I suddenly had much less memory on my C drive. Recently I discovered this is because there is another local disk, D, with ten times the memory as C. I'm pretty sure it wasn't like this before the reformatting, and I was wondering if there was any way to combine them into a single drive. If not, if i copy files into my D drive can i delete them from my C drive? I have already successfully installed programs such as Kazaa and AIM into my D drive but I am unsure as to whether i can move things such as my Program Files folder. Please let me know if you have any suggestions because I am clueless!

I have recently moved to a wireless broadband connection. The connection is slower than my cable internet in my previous residence. So, I'm noticing some things while I work. One thing is that every time I access my local hard drive, there is network traffic and I have to wait for the network. This is while I'm connected to a VPN. The folders I'm accessing are not synchronized off-line files, either. I do have one mapped network drive.

Anyone know what would cause Windows XP to instigate network traffic when accessing a local drive and how to limit it?


A:Network traffic while accessing local drive

This is actually a situation I ran across some time back. Every local access was trying to touch a network drive, and when that drive wasn't available, it got ugly! In my case, it was a errant path in the registry that was being searched every time I opened a file locally.

A:Wireless drops out when accessing local files on the network

my initaill reaction was to see if there are firmware updates avaible for the modem/router/ and a driver update for the pc network adapter
BUT when you said
When the laptop is close to the wireless router (i.e 5 bars instead of the normal 3), the problem doesn't seem to occur. Click to expand...

wasnt so sure - BUT it would be worth looking at the firmware and see what updates are available
If we could have makes and exact models of all devices - we should be able to post the information here

This only ever happens on wireless - the ethernet connected PC still works fine on the internet when the "drop out" occurs
correct ?

Lets try a few things -
When its working normally - make a note of all the status light on the router and modem
then when it "drops out" check those light and post any difference here

again when its working correclty lets see an ipconfig /all and various ping tests and post results here- see below
Now when it drops out repeat all the tests and save to something like notepad and when you have internet access post back here - make sure we know which is which

Also lets see what the wireless landscape looks like - post and image of the xirrus wireless tool - see details below
{ipconfig /all}
If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to paste the results into something like notepad and then copy onto a machine that can access the internet and post results here
We would like to see the results from ipconfig /all post back the results here
-> Start
-> (XP - enter the following in the RUN box)
cmd /k ipconfig /all
-> (Vista or Windows 7 - enter the following in the Search box)
cmd /k ipconfig /all

A black box will appear on the screen -
rightclick in the box
select all
control key + C key - to copy

then reply here and
control key + V to paste
{Ping Tests}
If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to paste the results into something like notepad and then copy onto a machine that can access the internet and post results here

A:Block someone creating user account in XP?

Had he been using your account (which was the administrative account) to logon? If so, he can create an account whenever he wants. Not sure with XP Home, but XP Pro provides alot more security with user accounts. Your best bet is to create a limited user account for him and don't let him use your account. Change the password on your account also. Although, I'm not sure how good he is with the computer--there are programs out there that let you bypass the admin's password (let's hope he doesn't know about it).

A:Block Applcation Access to a Folder

You could set up a work-around using App-Locker. Rights (Permissions) are basically user oriented, and I can't think of a way offhand to apply them to a specific application, but you can prevent users from using specific applications, and so achieve basically the same thing.

now, for some reason the program files folder in my c drive is denied. i dont understand why because i am the sole administrator account on the computer. i got this laptop from my uncle and he didnt give me the xp CD so i cant do a system recovery.ive tried partitioning the drive then deleting the old partition. i have no idea what to do. if you can tell me some way to format my drive without the OS cd or some other way to allow access that would be great. thanks in advance for any help hopefully you guys are better than the people on yahoo answers.

Hi, I found a trojan that my AV can get rid of, so I thought I'd go and delete the file manually. So it's in C:\System Volume Information\, and when ever I try to access it I get "Access Denied". Any help? Thanks

You have to take ownership of the folder to access it.

I recently replaced my motherboard which because my new one is a different chipset than my old one, required me to repair my windows install. Rather than do that and possibly lose a bunch of stuff in My Documents folder and my extensive Favorites I opted to just do a new install on another partition. So far everything has worked fine but when I tried to get into my old Admin files in my "Documents & Settings" Folder it gave me a red x and said Access Denied.

Anyone know how I get around this and into this folder?

Normally I try to find out myself, but for this problem I think I'll try asking.

We are often recommended to not run in Administrator mode/account. For this reason I created a second account on my Windows XP and have found that Internet Explorer can't get out through the wireless modem.

In the Admin account IE seems to have no problem.

How to take ownership of a file or folder in Windows XP
Relevancy 50.31%

I have an old 80gb HD that has some old files I would really like to get back. I think something went wrong with the boot.ini or something but it will no longer boot. It still has all the files. I am now using it as a slave drive on my current system(XP PRO SP2). The problem is that I need the files off a pw protected user. It is my old loggin so I know the pw but it wont let me into it. I was thinking that if my current loggin was the same I might be able to access it but no such luck.

Any ideas would be appreciated! Thank you.

Hey guys I was wondering if anyone knows how to block or preferably use a program to ask installs in the temp folders on your system The reason I want to do this is because I manually remove viruses because most of the anti-virus scanners out there don t do as well as I do when it comes to detecting what is a virus and what isn t as well as removing them This is by design and fully intentional on their part So that being said service the folder? in installs temp Block/ask for I d like to take preventive measures on stopping rootkit installations and any other virus installations by targeting a popular directory that virus will load from including service installs I d rather not have to log into the registry as the System user and start scanning or try to figure out what System user is running so I can delete those files as the System user When the rootkit has ring it makes it use the System user for many things and hides them from the user logged into the system This is why a rootkit works for those who wish to know So that being said I want to prevent them so I don t have to labor for hours killing off rootkits and I have one now It s bloody Block/ask for service installs in the temp folder? annoying and I m working on it Any suggestions A rootkit can t gain ring without a system restart because it has to be the first one with a hook and when its downloaded usually whatever is supposed to Block/ask for service installs in the temp folder? have that hook will have ring access Thanks again for your help

I am running Windows 7 Ultimate. The external drive is a Seagate, if it matters. I have someone coming to visit, and I set up a user account for them. I noticed that that user account can still access my external drive. Is there a way to change this? I'd prefer for them to not even see it as an existing drive, but keeping him blocked from accessing the drive is the main goal.

Thank you!

Good afternoon,
     I use exchange online a lot (OWA) and a few days ago Internet Explorer started defaulting to OneDrive Documents Folder instead of my local Documents folder. It was running fine before that. Not sure what changed. I have since changed
settings in OneDrive to save locally instead of on OneDrive and even disabled OneDrive completely. However, every time I try to add an attachment from Internet Explorer, it defaults to my OneDrive folder and not my local folder. Anyone know of a fix? Yes,
I know I could just use a different folder and copy from my Documents folder to the new folder, but there's obviously an issue that I would like to fix. Thank you all for your help.

Hello all,
I am new to this site, so please forgive any rookie mistakes. I recently bought a new computer to upgrade from my old one. The old computer then proceeded to completely break on me. I took out the old computer's hard drive and then installed it as a slave in the new computer. Now I am trying to access my files in it. The problem is that the folder I need to get into is the user profile folder in Documents and Settings (I have Windows XP) which says access is denied. Is there a way I can open it and get around whatever type of protection is on the folder? Thanks.

A lot of Windows 7 issues can be fixed by gaining access to the "AppData" folder. This is were messages, settings and lots of other goodies are stored. From the start menu, click "Computer" or "My Computer". Double click the "C" drive (or the main host drive). Double click the "Users" folder. Double click the main user folder (whatever you named your computer during original setup). From the menu bar, select Tools/Folder Options. On the "View" tab, select the radial button for "Show hidden files, folders and drives." This will enable viewing of the "AppData" folder. It will be a paler gray because it is still protected (as it should be), but now you can view it and change your indexed services and many other issues.
