    Is it possible to protect folders or disks from unauthorized access using the Eset HIPS?

    I would like to protect private folders or disks so that i get ask if a programm tries to access it.

    Last week i got an answer from the Eset support.

    I think they didn't get the point but anyway they advised me to try the RC.

    I did that yesterday but i can't figure out how to protect files and folders from beeing accessed.

    Eset Support: Please comment that.

    best regards

    This is not feasible, maybe in the future. Now HIPS is being aimed at protecting users from malware. However, it should be possible to create a blocking rule for writing to specific files for other than permitted applications.

    Thanks for your reply Marcos!

    Hm, i thought so too.
    Too bad... :(

    Do you have an intern wish list where you could write down this feature request?

    That would be really great cause i think a lot of users would appreciate that feature and i think the supporter i had e-mail contact with did not get the point..

    If i think about Spyware, maybe built in more or less legitimate programms the feature for protecting custom folders is very important.
