We need to code to lock the folder. First create a folder. Right click on desktop click on new and select text document. Then enter the bellow code.
title Folder Private
if EXIST “HTG Locker” goto UNLOCK
if NOT EXIST Private goto MDLOCKER
echo Are you sure you want to lock the folder(Y/N)
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 “HTG Locker”
attrib +h +s “HTG Locker”
echo Folder locked
echo Enter password to unlock folder
if NOT %pass%== YOUR_OWN_PASSWORD goto FAIL
attrib -h -s “HTG Locker”
ren “HTG Locker” Private
echo Folder Unlocked successfully
echo Invalid password
echo Private created successfully
Note : Replace YOUR_OWN_PASSWORD with your own password in the code.
Save the file in the newly created folder with .bat extension. Then delete that text document. After running the code you will be asked that confirm that you really need to give password or not type Y. That’s all your folder is locked. If you want to see the folder again right click on it. Go to folder options there click on the view there you can see Hide protected OS. Activate it and click on edit.
