Lock any folder with password & without any software

 

This technique is done just by creating a bat file and creating a secured folder . I had given the entire procedure below .

Procedure :

1. Open a Notepad file and copy the below content into it .

cls
@ECHO OFF
title http://tricks-hill.blogspot.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%== Tricks24x7.com 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

2. Now change Tricks24x7.com to your desired password and save the file as Password.dat.

3. Now once you double click the Password.bat file , a new folder will be created in which you have to copy all your data which you want to protect . Copy all the content into this folder.

4. Again double clock on Password.bat file and Press Y When cmd prompt appears.

5. Once you had done with it , your folder will get hidden.

6. To open that folder , Double click on the Password.dat file and it will ask for a password to open the folder .
