    How to Secure Database Folder?

    I have ASP site hosted in windows based host. I have 2 MS Access database for CMS and Forum.

    My webshost folder hierachy is as follows:
    |--an all other site files+folders

    I created the data folder where i have 2 access database. Today i realized that if other people knows the database path like w** they can download it by typing it in the browser. Is there anyway to restrict this without effecting the CMS & Forum.

    I will be greatful if somebody please help me.

    You should move them outside of the web root so there is no http access to them. Do you not have directories or the ability to creat a directory above your wwwroot?
