Is there a way to prevent a Windows user from formatting a usb flash key?
I want to attach a software that my costumers can't delete easily (at least not with the format utility in Windows Explorer)
thanks for helping and sorry for my english
A partition editor (PartedMagic, Gparted, (maybe) Partition Magic (not sure)) will allow you to mark the partition as write protected (partition flags), this should protect against formating and file deletion, however a user who knows what He/She is doing will still be able to clear the write protect.
what about if I need to disable it from formatting but still be possible to write documents? Is there any way to do this?
Getting rid of the "Format" option from the right-click menu in My PC would be enough for me.
