    Check the Cocoa documentation for handling files; if you don't find anything, check out what Posix says. In the end, the administrator of the computer can delete any file.

    Hey got it thanks :)

    1. Use NSFileManager

    2. Set the Attribute mask in the method

    - (BOOL)changeFileAttributes:(NSDictionary *)attributes atPath:(NSString *)path;
