[.net] Restrict file access

Recommended Posts

How can I protect a file from being deleted while open in a vb.net application? For example if I have a text file and dont want people to delete it while it is in use by the software how would I protect it from being deleted?

FileStream fs = new FileStream("myFile", FileMode.Create, FileAccess.ReadWrite, FileShare.None);

or

FileStream fs = new FileStream("myFile", FileMode.Create, FileAccess.ReadWrite, FileShare.Read);
