Want to make a password protected folder? Is your computer had many users? Have a important files that is stored in one of the folder in your computer with many user, is not safe. Unless you are the admin / administrator because you can manage another account and open the "guest". That means all files (as an admin) will cannot be access or perform any action when the user is using the guest account. But what if all users use the same admin account the only thing you can do is to create a folder where you can place all your files and set a password.

Well, I will teach you how to create a folder with a password so that only those user who knows the password can open it. Ok lets start, just follow these steps.

Create a New folder then make a new text file inside it

First make a new folder ( name it as you like ) then inside this folder, right click then "new" and click "Text Document". Open the text file then copy the entire code below  and paste it inside.

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


After you've paste the code dont save it yet. Find this line : (if NOT %pass%== password here goto FAIL ) and change the word "password here" to the password you want.

Find password here then replace it with the desire password
Find password here then replace it with the desire password

So your password here becomes "InTechTalk" make sure that you can remember it. After that go to 'save as' & name this file as "locker.bat ". Now back to the folder & you will find a "LOCKER command".

Double Click on it & you will find a new folder (Private ). Ok, now copy what you want in this "Private Folder" & after that come out of the folder.

Double click on locker again. It will open and ask if you want to lock your folder? Y/N ?. Press "Y" and press enter, then your private folder will dissapear. If you want to UNLOCK your folder, go to "LOCKER command" & type your password and you will see your private folder.

It not only hides the folder, but in case, you unhide all files... and try opening it without entering password, it will take you to the control panel...
