What OS? Which browser? What type of access are you trying to restrict - read or write? Your question is not clear –  Traveling Tech Guy Oct 21 '11 at 6:32

1 Answer 1

you can't limit the browser to access a folder on your system when other applications can access that folder (lets say: explorer).

there are soooooooooo many ways around that "copy protection" that i name just a few:

  • copy the file to another folder
  • map the folder to a different drive-name (see subst)

so, as long as you can access the file ... you can copy it.
