There is one problem though, the folder is only hidden. If i select "Show hidden folders" the password protected one is shown and i can open it without password. I really need a password on it. Please help!

if anyone will open the bat file using notepad, they can see what the password is..
after locking the folder "Secure" and hiding it, move the bat file to another folder or you can delete it so you'll have no files in that folder.. if you want to show/open the "Secure" folder, move the bat file or create a new one(if you deleted it) to that folder and open it and enter the password..

Hey ! awesome instructables , got me curious about programming with notepads : P

Quick question : What would you add to the code to make the folder lock itself when you close the ''secure'' folder ?

this is the code of folder lock

copy it in notepad

(where it is written) if NOT %pass%== type your password goto FAIL

remove type your password and type your own password

and then go to file (in the top of notepad) and then save it

type rename "locker.bat"
