Lock folders WITHOUT using Any Software!

Posted by Sharath
How to Do it:-
Just Simple 3 Steps away...

Suppose you want to lock the folder  "Test"  in Drive d: which has the path D:\Test

1. Create a text file in the Same Drive and type in it

ren ABC ABC.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}

Now Save this text file as "loc.bat"

2. Create another text file and type in it

ren Test.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D} Test

Now Save this text file as "key.bat"

3. Now you have 2 batch files loc and key.

>Press loc, the folder "Test" will change to control panel. you cannot view its contents.
>Press key and you will get back your original folder.
>For security purpose you may hide those loc.bat and key.bat files. So no one can access the folder until it gets the key to open.!
