    I'm setting up my KeePass database but through some investigating I found you could just delete the whole file so it makes the whole program worthless. Now I'm trying to find a way to lock the file so you can't delete it and the same goes with the KeePass program itself. Does anyone know how to do this? Do I need to encrypt the KeePass file with something like veracrypt? Or put it in a hidden volume?
    Thanks for any help.

    Encryption doesn't stop deletion

    My best advice: backup the database/prog etc to another drive which would protect from deletion, corruption or general data loss

    I store the kdbx files to my pendrive.

    You should always have backups anyway. I can't really determine from your post where you are likely to have "deletion" issues. If you have other users (NON-ADMIN) such as family on your computer, you might protect yourself using "permission" based access to the file. A user can be denied all access or read only if you want them to be able to see the file but not delete it. Such a limited user can easily be controlled from making a mistake with a careless deletion.

    Just a thought not knowing where your actual risks of deletion are coming from!
