    How can we make a drive Read Only using VB6

    Hi All,
    How can we make any drive as read only.
    The basic aim is to restrict copy between hard drive and removable drive.

    Regards,

    I have the code for hiding the drive. But, after hiding it in explorer still it can be accessed through command prompt or through start->run with "E:\ " in it. So it not useful.

    As i have written above, I need to restrict copy between Hard Disk and Removable disk, to stop data leakage.

    I'm sorry but I never heared about making a drive read-only using windows so would u tell me how to ?
    I only know how to set permissions .. but this will not make any thing if u try to access the drive from dos for example or anything other than the installed windows like booting from network , and if it's NTFS there is too many methods to access non-encrypted drive contents .
