I will recommend you some ways , please have a try .
1.Suppose you have a folder named mhm in D:\mhm

2.In the same drive next to the folder create a new notepad file with the exact statement
ren mhm mhm.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}

3.Now save this text file as loc.bat

4.Create another notepad file and type
ren mhm.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D} mhm

5.Save this as key.bat

6.Now there are two batch files . Double click loc.bat and your folder will change into Control Panel and the contents inside the folder will not be obtainable simply.

7.To open the folder double click key.bat and you get back your original folder .

8. If you want, keep the file key.bat at some other place. Whenever you need to access that folder just copy and paste the file at the previous location and double click.
