    File protection in symbian 2nd edition

    Hi,

    I am building an appliacation for 2nd edition which requires my files(media files) to be protected by the user and all applications. i.e my files should not be able to delete by any one. Is it possible in 2nd edition.? I know for 3rd edition we have platform security.

    It is very urgent and thanks in advance

    Not a real protection, but files cannot be deleted if you keep them opened (from an auto-started server application for example).

    On the other hand, this wouldn't be a solution, because some other application can close the processes that keep the files open, and then access them.
