    The fact that you don't understand the solution doesn't change the fact that just changing the attributes does nothing to solve your problem.

    I suppose if he just needs it to prevent accidental deletion, it solves his problem. He never really explained why he needed it read only. If it's part of a homework assignment for example, it might be enough that he did it. If it's a pointy-haired boss making random demands, then again it might be enough. If he has a real need for security... not so much.

    it solves my problem. i made it read only using
    Code:
    system("attrib -r logfileBrandNew.log");
    system("attrib +r logfileBrandNew.log");
    i know how to hide the file.
    but is it possible to prevent the file from deletion.........

    This is no solution. This is just setting the read-only marker. Every dumbass can remove it.

    You can't have a solution until you have clearly defined requirements, which you have yet to provide. We don't know how secure this needs to be.
