    How to make any Folder undeletable in windows 7?

    I am using windows 7 and always create bunch of folders but In those folders, there are some really important folders.I am saying really important because these folders contains some Information in the form of data which are very very important but it is not undeletable means children can delete it which will hurt me alot.I want to make it undeletable so that no one can delete it.I have heard that windows 7 contains an inbuilt facility to do so.Can you guide me for the same?

    Hello,
    I assume that the machine you are talking about is accessible to a lot of other users than you. So definitely you will require to protect your folders. Whether be it Windows XP, Windows 7 or Windows 8 the procedure to make a folder unreachable and thus undeletable to your juniors or your friends or to other children i similar and easy to do.

    1) Just you make a note how many folders are there which you want to bring in this unreachable and undeletable genre.
    2)Bring them all together and save them all in a common briefcase. This will save you the trouble of finding your files all over in your system.
    3) Now go to your Start Button
    4)Under this panel you will see the option for command prompt. Click on that.
    5)Once you are in the command prompt type this code cacls "folder or briefcase name" /e /c /d %username%
    Once you type this command your folder or briefcase will be taken as a special one which cannot be deleted by any person who accesses it. If they try also, they will only fail to do so.

    click on start,then click on run,after type in "cmd" without quotes.command prompt window opens,type the name of the drive you wish to create your folder in the format <drive-name>:and press enter, example "e:"without the quotes.but the folder cannot be created in the root of c:/ drive.then type this command "md con\" or "md lpt1\" without the quotes then enter. instead of lpt1,lpt2,lpt3.....lpt9.then undeletable and unrenamable folder is created.
    or folder lock software download and install then lock the folder.
