Iíve noticed that when trying to delete files from a certain directory UAC will ask for the userís permission before continuing (e.g. C:\Program Files). I have a folder/directory (E:\Archive) where I store documents and other files once I am done working on them. I was wondering whether I could change the UAC settings so that permission is required before deleting any of the files within this directory (and in doing so add an extra degree of protection to them).
