    Hello, All!

    Is there any way to restrict a folder in any drive of Windows 7 Ultimate, so that:

    1- Anyone shouldn't copy that folder from Windows to any other source.
    2- Anyone must not delete that folder from Windows.

    This should be on both Administrator and Limited users. I'm Administrator.

    In other words, if anyone opens Administrator account too, then he must be restricted to do anything with that folder.

    Stop hovering to collapse... Click to collapse... Hover to expand... Click to expand...

    You have to use BitLocker or 3rd-party tools like Truecrypt or Bestcrypt (sorry, forum engine doesn't allow me to put URLs here, so use google to find an additional information). If you don't encrypt your data, anyone with admin rights finally can own it.
    Anyone who has a physical access to your PC will be able to delete your folder, for example using bootable USB flash or CD with Linux.
