    File Delete (Access2000)

    I have searched a few times but maybe not with the correct words.

    I have some Access files on our server that can be used by everybody in the company. I have passwords on the file to prevent unauthorised persons from opening the files, but how do I prevent somebody from simply right clicking the mouse and delete the whole file.

    Any help or suggestions will be appreciated.

    You cannot prevent that. Access requires that all users have modify permissions (read/write/create/delete) in the folder containing the database.

    Make backups frequently, and/or set the server to make snapshots several times a day.
