Steps To Lock Folder

 

Step 1: Open Notepad and Copy code given below into it.

cls
@ECHO OFF
title hacksrelease.com
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%== hacksrelease 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

Step 4 :

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

Step 5 :

Now double click on lock.bat and when command prompt appears Type Y and press enter.

Step 6 :

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

Step 7 :

It will ask for password enter your password and done. (Default password is hacksrelease)

NOTE: To change the password replace hacksrelease with new password in the above code

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 to your computer whenever you required to access to your protected files.
