    First you might need to know what my system is: I am running Win 7 Home Premium 64 Bit on an HP notebook with a T6600 processor.

    I have a few user accounts one of which contains my personal files.... I want to set some files as "Not Shared" but I can not find a way to do so. I tried changing permissions in the security tab and that was a big mistake, I wound up unable to access the file even from the account that owns the file. after figuring out how to delete that file I recreated it and I set it as Share with: Nobody. Now other accounts would require a password to access the folder but I would be happier if I could actually set the tile "Not Shared." Any thoughts are appreciated.

    Thanks
    -Todd

    Login as a different user and you will not be able to access the locked folder. You will get a message Access denied. The shared option will be selected since you have shared it with nobody but you.
