any way to lock diff partition

windows 7

so i have 1 HDD but 2 partitions
1 for OS and programs
2 for songs, movies and other garbage

now as admin, i can lock folders on partition 1
but for partition 2 (whole) i dont have anything to chose from
only "Everyone" is on list and has full control

but when i want to add (admin/owner) rights i get a dialog where i can't choose person (admin/owner)
just some weird dialog to add object names

and even if i write in my admin account name or Administrators
it wont add anything and i would like to have admin only control over partition 2
without going for each folder with user rights
coz i have kids here that always mess things up :p
