Is it possible to write protect (lock) files on Skydrive so they do not get deleted by accident?

1 Answer 1


No. You can only change permissions to a file or folder.

  • As far as I can see the permissions is only for sharing. Is there any way for me to "fake" write protection by removing my write permission on the files?

  • Since the files are on Microsoft's servers, I don't think you can go further than changing 'sharing permissions'... Jun 13, 2012 at 18:40
