Stop ppl from accessing my files

by Candy1225 / December 31, 2014 7:39 PM PST

My window8.1 PC comes with 2 internal harddrives.

Stuff that is saved under my user account goes into windowCdrive, when I save stuff into dataDdrive they can't be saved under my user account.

Can I put stuff in driveD under my user account so others cannot access it?

Just right-click the folder, click Properties, then click the Security tab.

Good luck.

Besides the other issues I can walk up to most machines, plug in my USB key and boot from that to copy out what I need without leaving any trace.

Physical security is key here. Some folk forget that.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
