I want to read and write to a file but make it un-deletable

Hello

I have a txt file located on my hard-drive that is susceptible of being deleted unknowingly. I want to be able to prevent the file from being deleted but still be able to read, write and copy the file. My attempts just lock the file up and prevents any use of its contents.

All tips appreciated.

Regards
