  • How to Create a Folder with password protection without any Software

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

    Create Your Password Protected Folder

    Before you get started you need to create a folder that will house your password protected folder, this is just an ordinary folder and can be located anywhere and named anything.

    Navigate into your newly created folder and create a new Text Document. This can easily be done from the context menu.

    Open the document, now paste the following code into the contents of the document:

    @ECHO OFF 
    title Folder Private 
    if EXIST "HTG Locker" goto UNLOCK 
    if NOT EXIST Private goto MDLOCKER 
    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 
    ren Private "HTG Locker" 
    attrib +h +s "HTG Locker" 
    echo Folder locked 
    goto End 
    echo Enter password to unlock folder 
    set/p "pass=>" 
    attrib -h -s "HTG Locker" 
    ren "HTG Locker" Private 
    echo Folder Unlocked successfully 
    goto End 
    echo Invalid password 
    goto end 
    md Private 
    echo Private created successfully 
    goto End 

    Change the ENTER YOUR PASSWORD HERE text to the password you want to set. Now go ahead and save the file as locker.bat.

    Once the file is saved as a batch file you can delete the original text file.

    Now run your batch file by double clicking on it–the first time you run it, it will create a folder called Private. This is where you can store all your secret things. When you have finished adding all your stuff to the Private folder, run locker.bat again.

    This time you will be asked if you sure that you want to lock the folder, press the “Y” key and hit enter to lock your folder.

    You will see that your Private folder quickly disappears.

    If you run the script yet again, you will prompted for a password.

    If you enter the same password as you set in the script the Private folder will reappear if you enter the incorrect password the script will just Terminate.


    Most people don’t know how to show system files, but anybody who has some experience will probably be able to quickly figure it out in the Folder Options.

    Also, any ordinary user who unchecks the box will most probably be scared off by the warning message that appears.

    The second way someone could comprise the folder is to open the batch file and read your password. It’s definitely not a really secure way to hide your files, but it is fun.
