Trick to Lock Folder Without any Software
Securing confidential and personal data is always considered as a sophisticated task.You can use freeware third party softwares like Axcrypt, Disguise Folders etc to encrypt your data.If somehow you can’t use these softwares (installation restrictions) then you can secure your data using notepad.This trick works in windows xp,vista and windows 7.

Trick to Lock Folder without any Software

  • Open Notepad [Start-->Run-->Notepad].
  • In your Notepad just Copy/Paste the below code.
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%==tipstricks 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 above batch code the password has been set as tipstricks.You can change it by editing the following line
if NOT %pass%==tipstricks goto FAIL
  • Now save this notepad file as yourfoldername.bat ,here .bat is extension of your file. For now I am creating pctipstricks.bat file.
  • Now a .bat (system) file will be created.
  • Double Click on this .bat file and you will see a Locker Folder at the same location where your .bat file is saved.
  • Double click on that Locker folder and store your personal data in it.
  • After storing all your data in that folder again double click on .bat file and press Ythere to Lock the folder and press Enter.
  • Now your Locker will hide and only .bat file will be there.
  • Double Click on this .bat file and give your password (here tipstricks) and hit Enter.
That’s it. Now every time you want to open your secret folder you have to enter the password. You can update this folder any time and infinite number of times.
