Lock Folder With Password


I want to lock a folder without using any software ! Can anybody tell me how do to please?


  • make a new folder ( name it as you like )
  • inside this folder make a ( TXT ) file & copy inside it this (the entire thing)


Quote: cls  
title Folder Private  
if EXIST "Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}" goto UNLOCK  
if NOT EXIST Private goto MDLOCKER  
echo Are you sure you want to lock the 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  
ren Private "Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}"  
attrib +h +s "Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}"  
echo Folder locked  
goto End  
echo Enter password to unlock folder  
set/p "pass=>"  
if NOT %pass%== password here goto FAIL  
attrib -h -s "Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}"  
ren "Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}" Private  
echo Folder Unlocked successfully  
goto End  
echo Invalid password  
goto end  
md Private  
echo Private created successfully  
goto End  
  • After copy of the Commands go to line 23 (or try using shortcut- CTRL+F and type password to locate the line) u will find this word : password here (Change it with any password u like.) is :

eg: if NOT %pass%== narnia1234 goto FAIL

//so your password here becomes narnia1234 .//
  • After that go to 'save as' & name this file as "locker.bat "
  • Now back to the folder & you will find a ( LOCKER ) commanding.

  • Double Click on it & you will find a new folder (Private )
  • Ok ,, now copy what u want in this "private Folder" & after that come out of the folder, and Double click on locker again. It will open and ask if you want to lock your folder? Y/N ?
  • Type Y. your private folder will dissapear.
  • If you want to UNLOCK your folder ,go to (locker) & type your pass and you will see your private folder.

It not only hides the folder, but in case, you unhide all files... and try opening it without entering password, it will take you to the control panel...
