I’m running WinXP pro and have user accounts turned on. I was able to make the file storage areas of my system private by making this area the “my documents” special folder. Problem now is that I want to secure the files on my external HD back up device. I can’t find a way to do this (make the files private) without designating the external HD directories as a “my documents” special folder. Is there a workaround? Can locations on two drives both be “my documents” folders?
I thought about file encryption but wonder whether this would be compatible with my backup software.
