Can I prevent someone from deleting a Knox vault?

Can someone just open Knox and without opening the vault just move it to trash and do a secure empty trash with out entering a login password? DoesKnox have the option to prevent someone from deleting a vault without the password? I usually sign into to my mac as the administrator.

    Welcome to the forums, nodhannum!

    Non-admin users cannot delete files owned by another user. Please store your vaults in your own account and log out of your OS X account when done. Other (non-admin) user accounts will not be able to open the vault (since it is encrypted) nor delete it (since they do not have administrator rights).

    I hope that helps. Please let me know how it turns out.
  • I thought that might be the solution. I will set up another account on my iMac and restrict what a user can do with it. Then, I will just have to logout of the restricted account and come back in as the admin. Thanks for the feedback!
