Default An Risk by applying restrictions?

Hi guyz,
I just applied a restriction on my music and movies folders that "del" is marked on Deny rule. Now nothing can be delete but and be modified and copied. I wanna ask that in case on win corrupted or reinstalling win, will these folders and subfolders affect with this rule like is there any kind of data loss risk?



Plz tell me m worried bcuz i have no backup of those files just one copy on my HDD! PLZ!!

No, it won't make your files disappear.

After reinstalling though, you may have to forcefully take ownership of the folder and reconfigure all the permissions though. This is because the SID of your user accounts will be different as it's randomly generated each time you install Windows.
