How to password protect without software?

Hey Dixon Chapman!

If you want to lock your folder without any software, you can do it with the help of Notepad.

Please do the following steps to lock your folder.

1. Click on Start button go to programs > Accessories > Notepad.

2. Open Notepad and save it as Locker.bat after copying the following code:

cls
@ECHO OFF
title Folder Confidential
if EXIST "Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}" goto UNLOCK
if NOT EXIST Confidential goto MDLOCKER
:CONFIRM
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.
goto CONFIRM
:LOCK
ren Confidential "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 the 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}" Confidential
echo Folder Unlocked successfully
goto End
:FAIL
echo Invalid password
goto end
:MDLOCKER
md confidential
echo Confidential created successfully
goto End
:End

Note: Change the area with your password, where it is written "YOUR PASSWORD HERE"

3. After doing this, when you will open the Locker.bat and type "Y" it will automatically create the folder.

4. Now again open the Locker.bat it will ask your password, you will not access the folder until you write the password.

Thanks
