Method: Create a folder named “Private”, hide and change folder name to “HTG Locker”
1. Create a new Text Document
2. Paste the following:
cls @ECHO OFF title Folder Private if EXIST "HTG Locker" 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 "HTG Locker" attrib +h +s "HTG Locker" echo Folder locked goto End :UNLOCK echo Enter password to unlock folder set/p "pass=>" if NOT %pass%== PASSWORD_GOES_HERE goto FAIL attrib -h -s "HTG Locker" ren "HTG Locker" Private echo Folder Unlocked successfully goto End :FAIL echo Invalid password goto end :MDLOCKER md Private echo Private created successfully goto End :End
3. Save as locker.bat (Once the file is saved as a batch file you can delete the original text file.)
To manually see the files, navigate to Folder Options, uncheck “Show hidden files, folders, and drives” and uncheck “Hide protected operating system files”.
Note. To skip the command prompt input, remove red-colored lines.
