1. I heard somewhere that you can get into a persons computer files if they are on the same network as you by just typing the address of the folder or something like that, is this true? if so how? what i mean is like with his shared folder, but see all his folders and get into them without him knowing

2. I want to install vista but i need another partition to put it on, how do i create this?

thanks all

1) That would put you in the realms of the computer misuse act, and would be against the rules of this board.

2) You need to use some form of partition management software. The generally accepted leader is Partition Magic.

get to their c drive if administrative shares are enabled..


i'd get a seperate hard drive for vista tbh, less hassle

They are enabled by default but you'll need admin rights to access it, either domain admin or local admin for that machine.

He means if you can get into the share you don't need to learn much more.

The answer is no without exploiting OS security holes. But as Memphis has said, you would be violating the Computer Misuse Act if you knowingly gained access.
