Yesterday my lab incharge asked how to make a folder private. i didn't knew what he was asking for ,then i searched for it and then found the following information related to it.
Now if you cannot select this option then it may be because of following reasons:
- The folder is not in your user profile (Drive_letter:\Documents and Settings\User_name, where Drive_letter is the drive on which Windows XP is installed and User_name is your user name). The Make this folder private option is available only for files in your user profile (the My Documents folder and its subfolders, and the Cookies, Desktop, Start Menu, or Favorites folders).
- The Windows folder is located on a drive that is formatted with the FAT or FAT32 file systems. The Make this folder private option requires the NTFS file system.
- If the folder you are trying to make private is not located in your profile (Drive_letter:\Documents and Settings\User_name, where Drive_letter is the drive on which Windows XP is installed and User_name is your user name), move it to your My Documents, My Music, or My Pictures folder and then select the Make this folder private option (if it is available).
- If the Make this folder private option is still unavailable in the My Documents folder, you may need to convert the Windows drive to NTFS as follows.
|a.||Click Start, and then click Run.|
|b.||In the Open box, type cmd, and then click OK.|
|c.||In the command prompt window, type the following line, and then press ENTER|
convert drive_letter: /fs:ntfswhere drive_letter is the drive on which Windows XP is installed. For example, typing convert d: /fs:ntfs converts drive D to NTFS format.
|d.||Press Y, and then press ENTER to continue if you agree to remove your previous operating system backup (if appropriate).|
|e.||Press Y, and then press ENTER to dismount the volume.|
|f.||Press Y, and then press ENTER to schedule the conversion for the next time the computer restarts.|
|g.||Restart your computer.|
