  • You have to bear in mind we cannot see over your shoulder, so you have to tell us exactly what you need. What OS, what circumstances, what file types, who else has access & what their permissions are etc, etc. Basically if someone can open a file, they can extract the data in some way, shape or form, even if they have to photograph the screen to do it. – Tetsujin Jun 7 at 11:34

    You might consider an encrypted DMG (disk image file). Keep the files in there and even if it IS copied no one can access the files. Is something like that acceptable for your needs? – Steve Chambers Jun 7 at 13:04
  • If the software is run directly from source code then the files need to be readable and so cannot be protected when in the environment that will run them. If the files are compiled to a executable then just give them the executable. So we need to know more about the code – Mark Jun 7 at 18:03
