Using CACLS with Windows XP Home Edition Using the NTFS File System

In Windows XP Home Edition with the NTFS file system, it's necessary to take a different approach since Simple File Sharing does not allow modifying the Access Control Lists (ACL's). The result is the same, but you use the Cacls command-line tool to modify file or folder access control lists (ACL's).

Click [Start] [Run] type cmd and click [OK].
Navigate to the root folder of the partition where the System Volume Information folder you want to access is located.
Type cacls ":\System Volume Information" /E /G :F and press ENTER
Note: In this instance, make sure you type the quotation marks as shown in the line above.
Double-click the System Volume Information folder to open.

To remove permissions, type cacls ":\System Volume Information" /E /R at the command prompt to remove all permissions for the user.

Thanks I did everything but I don't have "Security tab" in properties. I have a one labeled sharing but all the boxes are disabled and I can't check them.
