Windows 7: Lock out data partition to Visitors

Lock out data partition to Visitors

I'm a brand new Windows 7 user and very satisfied so far. I've created a Standard user account without password for use by visitors. I've already setup Parental Controls to limit access to programs. That seems to work well. My hard drive is divided into two partitions: C: and E: for OS/programs and data, respectively. I want to prevent visitors from accessing the E: (data) partition. Can anyone explain how to do that? Thanks

Right-click on the drive in question > goto Properties > Security > Edit > Add, use the user name for the account you want to block, put check every box under "DENY".

I created this snip to help before I saw it has been resolved but I'll post it for any future visitors.
