    Hi,
    If i need to protect a volume against deletion, what is the proper way to
    realize that ?

    Also can a volume be hidden, so that it does not display in the manager ?

    For instance are there registry settings for that ?

    Thanks,

    Make your users non-administrators.
    Don't give them access to the disk manager.

    Hi,
    thanks for your answer, i am sorry because my post wasn´t precise enough:
    I can´t modify the user settings because this software will run on customer
    machines.
    And the customer will not allow me to change User settings.

    Then you cannot protect the volume from removal, since the User does not want
    so.
