    I am using Win XP Pro SP2 with an NT Filing System. When I am using Simple
    File Sharing. the "Make this Folder Private" is greyed out. I have been
    using the non-simple file sharing and changed back to Simple File Sharing.
    Any ideas how to un-grey "Make this Folder Private" option?

  2. Derek;
    Simple File Sharing needs to be disabled.
