By | 2021-08-22

In this quick guide I will show you how to create a private folder and lock it with a specific password of your choice in a few easy steps.

How to lock and unlock important files and folders and other media files on your Windows laptop or desktop computer by locking them in a secret and hidden folder. You can place this folder wherever you like on your PC, and you need a specific password that you will create to unlock it, and it is a very simple way that won’t take more than 1 minute of your precious time and no extra paid software to install to work.

For this to work, you will need a special text code which you can find below and copy and paste it in a text file editor of your choice.

title Folder Locker
if EXIST “Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}” goto UNLOCK
echo Are you sure u 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.
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%== 123456 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

In the end, just go to File and select Save As in your text editor and select all and remove the .txt and replace it with a .bat

Or watch the video guide I made, and it will show you all the simple and easy steps necessary.
