    I have turned on Windows Sharing on my Mac, but it seems that everyone on the network can view and modify my documents.

    Is there any way of restricting access to my files e.g. by setting a username or password to access the share?

    Ah it seems that because I was using the same username and password on my PC and Mac my PC was automatically sending out my username and password for me.

    Thought that would have been a bit odd if everyone could read and write to my mac :p
