    I have Win7. 64 Bit and 2. USB Hard Drives.

    I have Videos Music Notes Work Documents and Photos on the USB Drives.

    So I want my Limited Account to be Restricted.

    So I know I Right Click the USB Drive then Click Security.
    Then I have to remove USERS.

    And I do this by Clicking on Edit then Click USERS then Remove.

    I get all of this but one thing?
    I do not See just USERS I See something that says AUTHENTICATED USERS and then SYSTEM and then my Admin Account for just me.

    So I Removed AUTHENTICATED USERS and now I can not get into my USB Drive.

    I did try System Restore but it did not help.

    Can anybody help?

    Thank you for getting back to me.

    I did go back to the USB Drive and Right Click it.
    Then I Click Security then Advanced.

    I then Clicked Ad.

    I Click the Find Tab.

    In the list I Click on AUTHENTICATED USERS and then Ad this back in.

    So no I can Open my USB Drive.

    And I now know how to Restrict another User on this Computer from Opening my USB Drive.

    I Right Click my USB Drive then Click Security.

    I Click Edit then in this list AUTHENTICATED USERS is Selected.

    I thought I Click Remove but I now know this is not what I do.

    I go down to the List to what I want to Allow or Deni.
    I Click Deni All Control and this take Check Marks out of any of the Allow Box.

    Thank you for getting back to me again.

    Sound like you have the hang of it.
