Windows 7: Make drive accessible to just one user?

Make drive accessible to just one user?

Hi Folks,

I'm on a domain machine managed by my IT dept (who are more than willing to help). I want to make the D drive on my machine accessible to just me, and not other users. Is there any way to do this? I don't have the admin pwd, but if I give them instructions, the IT boys will do it.

It seems to me that any IT department worth their pay could figure out how to do that on their own. The appropriate way to do this depends on the specific situation and company policy.
