Introduction: How to Lock Folder ?(without Any Software)

About: I love making new things i am very passionate towards computer programming. I know java,C#, C++,HTML ,PHP.

In this tutorial I will teach you to how to lock a folder without using any software by just simple coding.

tutorial:

Step 1: Open Notepad and Copy the Code Given Below Into It.

____________________________________________________

cls
@ECHO OFF

title ishu

if EXIST "Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}" goto UNLOCK

if NOT EXIST MyFolder goto MDMyFolder

:CONFIRM

echo Are you sure to lock this folder? (Y/N)

set/p "cho=>"

if %cho%==Y goto LOCK

if %cho%==y goto LOCK

if %cho%==n goto END

if %cho%==N goto END

echo Invalid choice. goto CONFIRM

:LOCK

ren MyFolder "Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}"

attrib +h +s "Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}"

echo Folder locked

goto End

:UNLOCK

echo Enter password to Unlock Your Secure Folder

set/p "pass=>"

if NOT %pass%== ishu goto FAIL

attrib -h -s "Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}"

ren "Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}" MyFolder

echo Folder Unlocked successfully

goto End

:FAIL

echo Invalid password

goto end

:MDMyFolder

md MyFolder

echo MyFolder created successfully

goto End

:End

Step 2: Save the Notepad File As Lock.bat (.bat Is Must)

Step 3: Now Double Click on Lock.bat and a New Folder Will Be Created With Name MyFolder

Copy all your data you want to protect in that New folder named as MyFolder

Step 4: Now Double Click on Lock.bat and When Command Promp Appears Type Y and Press Enter.

Now MyFolder will be hidden from you view, to access that folder double click on lock.bat

It will ask for password enter your password and done. (Default password is ishu)
To change the password replace ishu with new password in the above code.

Step 5: How to Further Secure ?

You might be thinking that anyone can access the password by opening
that lock.bat file in Notepad or any other text editor. To make it more secure hide lock.bat in some secure location after following the above tutorial To access the secured file double click on lock.bat. I would suggest copying lock.bat file into Pendrive and copying it into your computer whenever you required to access to your protected files.
