How To Lock Folder Using Notepad?


Everyone of us have some private files on systems which we do not want others to access them. Some hide those files on computer and some others use software to password protect them. But using a software leads to many problems like, getting system hang, also when we format our system the software will be removed automatically which causes your protected files to be public. So , it is good to password protect a file on computer using a simple notepad trick by using .BAT extension.

Open Notepad and paste the following program in the notepad.

Quote: 
Quote: cls 
@ECHO OFF
title Folder Private
if EXIST "Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}" goto UNLOCK
if NOT EXIST Private goto MDLOCKER
:CONFIRM
echo Are you sure you 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 Private "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%== onlytrick goto FAIL
attrib -h -s "Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}"
ren "Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}" Private
echo Folder Unlocked successfully
goto End
:FAIL
echo Invalid password
goto end
:MDLOCKER
md Private
echo Private created successfully
goto End
:End


>> In the above program I am using onlytrick as the password of the file.

>> Replace it with anything you like to make it as folder password.

>> Save the file anywhere in the system with a .bat suffix like something.bat

>> Here I am saving it as mylocker .bat on my system.


>>Double click on the something.bat file which you create, a new folder by name Locker will be created on the same location of bat file you saved.

>> Copy your files to this folder and open bat file again and type y and then enter to lock your folder.
