Can a folder protected by WinSesame be deleted by someone who can access that folder?

In terms of access rights, a file or a folder locked by WinSesame keeps the same permissions as the original file or folder in clear. Encrypting a file does not prevent a person who can access this file with the corresponding rights from copying, renaming or deleting it as they might have done with the file in the clear. That person simply cannot open this file even from another computer if they do not know the password and do not have the possible digital key required to open it.

Files and folders protected by WinSesame can be backed up like any other. It is advisable to use WinSauonnement on computers using WinSesame because this software is interconnected with WinSesame and will command WinSesame to close all protected files and folders before starting the backup, thus avoiding any risk of backing up confidential data in the clear. The reluctance to have redundant backups of highly confidential data therefore disappears.

WinSesame fully protects you against data theft.
