Usually, when you start the Recovery Console (RC) the system prompts you for the password for the selected Windows 2000 installation. If the RC can't find a valid Win2K installation, it doesn't ask you for a password, and you can perform only basic functionsósuch as the fixmbr, fixboot, manage, and format partitions commandsóbut you can't access any folder other than the root of the hard disk.
If the above options do not provide enough security for you, download Access manager for Windows.
Access manager provides much more security than standard ways in Windows.
