Windows 7: Making files undeletable

As you found out, folder/file permissions should be able to prevent users from getting to the folder. You just need to understand how to retain access for your admin account. I cannot walk you thru that right now - maybe later.

Maybe it's a bit too complicated for me...

Though I can wait, it's not that urgent.

See if this helps:

You might want to watch this at 720p and in the full screen mode.


You will want to add your admin account where you see me add username.

Oh man that worked like a charm! Microsoft should have made it simpler...it's too complicated though works fine!

Thankyou UserIssues so much! I can't rep you - forum is asking me to distribute rep elsewhere, lol
