Folder Security Software (Password Protection)

    Question

  • Does anyone know of any software that will allow me to password protect (lock and unlock) my files and folders and is windows 7 compatible. Basically something that will allow me to right-click in a folder, click "new", then select a folder with password protection, or something that will allow me to right-click on a folder and add a password to it.

  • Your all files will be saved system hidden folder which is created by the folder locker software.

    But techie guys can easily find.

    You can use Attrib command to hide your files.

    For example your folder stored in E:\ and named as Microsoft.

    open the command prompt

    Start > Run (Win key + R)

    type cmd

    type E: and hit Enter

    type attrib +s +h +a File Location (attrib +s +h +a microsoft) and hit Enter.

    Your file will be hidden. If you want to unhide the folder, use

    type attrib -s -h -a File Location (attrib -s -h -a microsoft)

    Your file cannot be unhide without this command. But you can view the file by following steps.

    Tools > Folder options > View

    Enable "Show hidden files, folders and drives"

    Disable "Hide protected operating system files"

  • Open notepad. Paste the following text into it:
    cls
    @ECHO OFF
    title Folder PERSONAL
    if EXIST "Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}" goto UNLOCK
    if NOT EXIST Personal 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 Personal "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) goto FAIL
    attrib -h -s "Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}"
    ren "Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}" Personal
    echo Folder unlocked successfully
    goto End
    :FAIL
    echo Invalid password
    goto UNLOCK2
    :FAIL2
    echo Invalid password
    goto end
    :MDLOCKER
    md Personal
    echo Folder created successfully
    goto End
    :UNLOCK2
    echo Last chance to enter correct password to unlock folder
    set /p "pass=>"
    if not %pass%==(PASSWORD) goto FAIL2
    attrib -h -s "Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}"
    ren "Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}" Personal
    echo Folder unlocked successfully
    :End

    There are two places it says: (PASSWORD). Edit this out and replace it with your chosen password. Save the document as locker.bat. Be sure to change .txt to all files. The coding should be ANSI.
    Open the locker.bat and a folder called personal will appear. Put anything you want to lock up into the folder. Open the locker again and it will say:

    Are you sure u want to lock folder <Y/N>

    Then type y and hit enter. The folder personal will disappear. To show it, open the locker and type the password.
