networking / sharing question

We have one desktop and two laptops other than my desktop on the network, two are xp, one is Vista and mine Windows 7.
Networking is setup and running very well, because my pc is much bigger with a lot more storage than the others a couple have folders on a partition on my pc which they can store stuff, works well to
The question is, using my pc as A and the others B, C, D, how can I set it up so if PC C has a folder on my PC, that folder is not accessible by B & D
Any help appreciated

Hi
Have a look at this SF Tutorial (especially the folder sharing settings) - File Sharing - Between XP and W7 (and vice versa)
Hope this helps in some way

That is a good question but not easily accomplished. As it stands you can only share with "Everyone" or "nobody".

You would need to set up seperate standard User accounts on the other machines you need to secretly share with, then set up another standard User account on your machine then share through those accounts.

That is the only way to keep the other Users in your network from having access to those special files.

thanks for the reply, so are you saying that I would have to set up another three accounts on my machine, one for each machine?
