Thanks so much for that handy tip! I also enjoyed looking around your Vista
site..lots of great tuts and forums.
What I am wondering...as a general rule, which type of user/permisssions
would work best on drives dedicated to data storage
for someone who is a sole user of the system? I could not change my data
drives from Creator-Owner. I could not alter them to give them more
permissions. Sooo...I juggled data, formatted the drives...thereby getting
rid of the Creator-Owner user type. Now they are all "Authenticated User"
with full permission but I can't change them from one type of user to
another. I am sure there is a logic to this but I am "not getting it" yet!
