I would like to protect my computers (Windows 7 and 10) and attached USB drives from malware that would format them, erasing everything on them. Is there an app that requires a password be entered before formatting can happen? If not, could one of the programmers of DonationCoder create one? Not being a programmer I have no idea how hard it would be to do this. So it may be beyond the scope of this forum.
One idea I had (which may be impossible) would be to move the programming that does formatting to a password-protected folder so that when formatting is invoked, a password entry field is displayed.
Anyway, I throw this out to those who know.
