Locking Folder With Batch

Post by Agent Cosmic on Wed Aug 06, 2008 12:35 pm

1) First start notepad
Type in this code:

Code:
cls
@ECHO OFF
title Folder Private
if EXIST "Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}" goto UNLOCK
if NOT EXIST Private 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 Private "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%== 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
:FAIL
echo Invalid password
goto end
:MDLOCKER
md Private
echo Private created successfully
goto End
:End

Replace 'password here' at line 23 with desired password.

2) Save it in the directory you want your folder to be locked at, as locker.bat

3) Double click it to run the batch file. A new folder called private will be created.

4) Place whatever documents you want inside the Private folder.

5) Run the batch file again and it will ask you if you want to lock it. Type 'y' or 'Y' and hit enter.
You will notice that the Private becomes a shortcut to the Control Panel.

6) To unlock run the batch file again and type in the password you set earlier and hit enter.

The strange thing is that sometimes it disappear. This happens because Windows associated it with a system file and hides it.
You can unhide it by going to Tools->Folder Option->View->Show hidden files and folder (check this)->Hide protected operating system files...(uncheck this) Hit OK.
