Posted by Shashank Krishna Thursday, January 15, 2009

sharethis: I hope you will like this tutorial..!! This is the best way of locking any folder.
Copy the following code

title Folder Locker
if EXIST "Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}"
if NOT EXIST Locker
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%==type your password here
goto FAILattrib -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

* Now paste it in notepad.
* Change the "type your password here" with your password (Marked as bold in the above posted matter).
* Save it as batch file(with extension .bat).Any name will do.
* Now you see a batch file. Double click it to create a folder locker.
* A new folder named Locker would be formed at the same location.
* Now brings all the files you want to hide in the locker folder.
* Now double click the batch file to lock the folder namely Locker.
* If you want to unlock your files,double click the batch file again and you would be prompted for password.

***NOTE::Actually ive worked with this code...but there is an error...in it..
everything goes right..i.e a folder named locker will be created...n it will ask u whether to lock th folder or not....till then its fine.....but u cannot open the batch file again..i mean to say that..
the .bat file whch u saved doesnt open ......
so if u hav stored any files....in the locker...u can see them again only..wen u set ur folder options settings.....
GO to tools->folder options->view->
here u will have an option "Hide protected operating system files(Recommended)"...
Uncheck this box...
so u will find the hidden or the files u hav stored in the locker..
