How to Lock a Folder with a Password without Any Software in Windows 7

This Article will help you in locking any folder without any third party software which will also prevent any virus infection due to third party software's. This can also be used on Windows XP, windows Vista, Windows 7

1. Make a new folder ( name it as you like ):

2. Inside this folder make a ( TXT ) file & copy inside it this (the entire thing):

3. Copy and paste this code inside the New Text Document:


Quote: cls
title Folder Private
if EXIST "Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}" goto UNLOCK
if NOT EXIST Private goto MDLOCKER
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.
ren Private "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%== password here 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
echo Invalid password
goto end
md Private
echo Private created successfully
goto End

4. After you copy the Command code, go to the bold words (or try using shortcut- CTRL+F and type password to locate the line) you will find this word : password here (Change it with any password u like.) is :
eg: if NOT %pass%== example1234 goto FAIL
//so your password here becomes example1234 .//

5. After that go to Save as... & name this file as "locker.bat ". Be sure to change the "Save as type" from "text" to "All Files" :

6. Now back to the folder & u will find a ( LOCKER ) commanding (locker.bat). Double Click on it & you will find a new folder (Private ):

7. Now copy what you want in this "private Folder" & after that come out of the folder, and Double click on locker again. It will open and ask if you want to lock your folder? Y/N ?

8. Type Y. your private folder will disappear.

9. If you want to UNLOCK your folder ,go to (locker) & type your pass and you will see your private folder.

10. Enter the password and hit "Enter".


It not only hides the folder, but hide all files... and try opening it without entering password, it'l take you to the control panel...

Also, if you want to store files on your Pen-Drive, you can use this script. No Software Required.

Incase you delete your Locker file (just in case), then you can make a new one (but with the same password) and open it from that.

Alternatively, you can keep this locker file somewhere else, and when you want to open your folder, only then bring it back to that place.

This can also be used on Windows XP, windows Vista and Windows 7
