Make password protected folder using batch script

Hi, interesting and useful trick to password protect folder without using any software using batch file programming.

 

There are a lot of methods are available that you can use to create a password protected folder. Most of them require the use of some third party software. Using this neat method you can hide your folders with a quick batch script.

It’s important to note that this will not actually conceal your data from somebody who knows what they are doing.

Steps:

1. Open Notepad and Copy code given below into it.

 

cls
@ECHO OFF
title coolhacking-tricks.blogspot.com
if EXIST “Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}” goto UNLOCK
if NOT EXIST MyFolder goto MDMyFolder
:CONFIRM
echo Are you sure to lock this 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 MyFolder “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 Your Secure Folder
set/p “pass=>”
if NOT %pass%== techipick goto FAIL
attrib -h -s “Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}”
ren “Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}” MyFolder
echo Folder Unlocked successfully
goto End
:FAIL
echo Invalid password
goto end
:MDMyFolder
md MyFolder
echo MyFolder created successfully
goto End
:End

Here I’ve used password as techipick (See bold text). You may change it with your own password.

2. Save the notepad file as lock.bat (.bat is must)
3. Now double click on lock.bat and a new folder will be created with name MyFolder
4. Copy all your data you want to protect in that New folder
5. Now double click on lock.bat and when command promp appears Type Y and press enter.
6. Now MyFolder will be hidden from you view, to access that folde double click on lock.bat
7. It will ask for password enter your password and done.
Note: To change the password replace techipick with new password in the above code
