Ok...I tried the permissions...it does work..but not quite what I wanted...and there's something I didnt quite understand...If I put Full Control for my username, and Deny Full Control for Everyone...what does that mean???Technically, it means that no one but my username can have access to these files...but how is this possible??I mean...I do have access to my files (on my own computer) and my username wont be logged in on other computers...so technically what I am doing is giving access to myself to my files?? I dont know if your following me...cuz im kind of lost!!

What I wanted (and used to get sometimes, dont know why nor how to do) is to be prompted for username and password each time someone tries to open shared folders...if they know the username/password...they are able to view/edit/modify...if not, they cannot see the files...
How can I do that??

Thanx again...
