I want my folder or file to be password protected.
I dont want to hide it.
I dont want anyone to delete it.
I dont want to encrypt it because another program reads it for its own application.
People can read the file but cannot alter it or delete it. Only the person having the password can alter or delete it.
The administrator's computer can be used by all people so please do not suggest anything from administrator's perspective. Assume there is no administrator.Please try to avoid giving references about any available tools doing this(only freely available tools are welcome).
I need a C code for my problem if possible but if you can tell me the concept atleast , it would do me great help.
So what I want from you is either a way already available in windows or atleast a concept.
Please mail me. Desperately waiting for your reply. If by chance you are not able to suggest anything (which I dont thing is possible ) , please tell me where to contact .
Thanks a lot..
