How can I restrict access to the Documents folder on a PC?

Hello,

I want to give a friend remote access to my PC so he can install his own software package. How can I do this without him being able to read or copy the contents of my Documents folder where I have all my personal files?

Thanks.

You could create another account and restrict the access to the folder from that account and allow him to remote in while logged into that account.

Or, if you prefer not to create additional accounts and deal with logging in and out of them you could create a folder locker batch file. The instructions are here:
