Lock File(s) on Windows Without Using Any Software


How many times have you wished of a software using which you can hide or lock files, restricting its access to other unwanted users. Although there are various software available in market using which you can easily lock/hide files but, i personally dont trust them because most of them are bloatware or spyware.

In this post i am going to share a simple yet powerful way of locking and hiding important files using a the following method. Follow the instructions to make you own Locker ( Without any software !! ) : Open notepad.
Copy the following code in notepad file :

cls
@ECHO OFF
title Folder Locker
if EXIST “Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}” goto UNLOCK
if NOT EXIST Locker goto MDLOCKER
:CONFIRM
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.
goto CONFIRM
:LOCK
ren Locker “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%==YOUR PASSWORD HERE 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
:FAIL
echo Invalid password
goto end
:MDLOCKER
md Locker
echo Locker created successfully
goto End
:End

Change the “YOUR PASSWORD HERE” with your password.
Save it as batch file ( with extension .bat ) For eg. Locker.bat
Now you will see a batch file. Double click it to create a folder locker ( A new folder named Locker would be formed at the same location )
Thats it you have now created your own locker and that too without using any software !
Brings all the files you want to hide in the locker folder.
Double click the batch ( As created above ) file to lock the folder namely Locker. If you want to unlock your files, simple double click the batch file again and you would be prompted for password ( In DOS window ). Enter the password and enjoy access to the folder.
