Permissions for root to copy files?


Answer: 1

25 hours ago

I am a user and I have files and folders saved on the hard disk drive of a computer running a Linux system.

I protected my data by restricting the permissions of access. If the root user decided to copy my files do the permissions of access need to be changed before root can copy my files? Is there any command line that can show me who access my saved data?

root or physical access == access to your files, including copy, edit, and deletion.

Your only option would be encryption, although root can access the files when they are decrypted.
