Hey Wrong, I do not believe you can put a password directly on your hard drive to protect game deletion. I know you can put a password on your whole profile to prevent logging in. Could maybe do that and make a new profile for your son. If you do not want to do that, then I would recommend to back up those saves to a USB drive, or to the cloud every time you make a new save.

You best bet would be to keep all your saves in the cloud and then password protect your profile.

If your son can't log into your profile then he wont be able to delete anything from the cloud.

Unfortunately you can't protect other items like game downloads/installs and dlc though.

To clarify, Hero, are your save files disappearing or are the actual game files gone? Let's check your hard drive in Settings > System > Storage for any corrupt files, too.

Anything purchased on Demand such as Arcade games and DLC can be re-downloaded from your Download History, so that content isn't lost forever!

You'd need to remove the HDD when to hide it when not using the system.

Hi Hero,

Your games are most likely not just 'disappearing'. Have you asked your son whether or not he is the culprit?
