[TUT] How to lock folder without any software (Windows OS)

  • #1

Main Question or Discussion Point

First, open Notepad, and paste the code below.

Change the password in the fields where is "type your password"

Go to, File/ Save As...

Save the file as loc.bat

Starting loc.bat will automatically create folder called Locker, which later you could use for protecting your files or folders inside of this folder.

When you will open loc.bat again, it will ask you for password and if you have typed the password correctly, it will unlock your folder.

Enjoy! :smile:

Code:
cls
@ECHO OFF
title Folder Locker
if EXIST "Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}" goto UNLOCK
if NOT EXIST Locker goto MDLOCKER
:CONFIRM
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.
goto CONFIRM
:LOCK
ren Locker "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 folder
set/p "pass=>"
if NOT %pass%==type your password here 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
:FAIL
echo Invalid password
goto end
:MDLOCKER
md Locker
echo Locker created successfully
goto End
:End

Isn't the same as
"attrib -h -s your_folder" ?
Why to use a password ? (cause anyone could type the code, and see the password )

No. If you type the code again, and save it like loc.bat, you can see the password, since there is already created folder named "Locker".

That's what I said. So, why the password ?

It is useless! The key is in the lock...

Anyway you don't depend on the password. Just rename the folder (any name works) , and execute "attrib -h -s new_name" .

The "locked folder" is gone...
