How to lock a folder without any software (Batch Programming)

Hi in my last post i guide you to create a batch programming to create a locker. This is very cool. You don’t need to download any locker softwares. You are going to enjoy this hack.

In my older post i explain you how to lock folder using command prompt. But in that no password option. But this is going to very cool using password.

Locker Code:

title Folder Locker
if EXIST “Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}” goto UNLOCK
echo Enter password to lock folder or for cancel press N
set/p “cho=>”
if %cho%==XXXX goto LOCK
if %cho%==n goto END
if %cho%==N goto END
echo Invalid choice.
ren Locker “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%==XXXX goto FAIL
attrib -h -s “Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}”
ren “Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}” Locker
echo Folder Unlocked successfully
goto End
echo Invalid password
goto end
md Locker
echo Locker created successfully
goto End

  1. Copy this Code into notepad and replace the XXXX with your password.
  2. Save it with .bat extension(for eg: lock.bat).
  3. Copy the Batch file to any folder.
  4. Now double click the Batch file, It will ask you to enter the Password. Enter the password.
  5. Now you can see the Lock folder is created.
  6. Place your files into lock folder which you want to protect.
  7. Again double click the Batch file, it will ask you enter the password. Enter the password.
  8. Now the folder will be Locked.
  9. To unlock again double click the Batch file,enter the password.
  10. You can see the Lock folder.

It is very cool to use.
