In my previous post, I have share with you how to protect your folder with dos command. In this post, I will share with you on how to set up a password for your folder with dos command.

Follow these instruction.

1. Open Notepad and copy the code below
2. Change your password in the code it's shown the place where to type your password.
3. Save file as locker.bat
4. Now double click on locker.bat
5. I t will create folder with locker automatically for you. After creation of the locker folder, place the contents you want to lock inside the locker folder and run locker.bat again .

<---The code, copy the whole thing---->

title Folder Locker
if EXIST "Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}" goto UNLOCK
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.
ren Locker "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%== type 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
echo Invalid password
goto end
md Locker
echo Locker created successfully
goto End

Yeah, you can save you private data for free but here the catch, you can edit your password by right clicking the bat file and select "edit". In order to prevent someone changing your password, try change the file name and extension such as "system.dat".
