• folder lock – the simple way

    Just something that I recently learned when browsing in certain site. :D

    With this there is no need to search for an download a complicated folder lock software. You want privacy over your personal folders? Just do the following:

    – Copy the text in the file which I will provide later in this entry.
    – Paste the text into notepad software and in line 23 search the word “password”, and then just change it to any password according to your taste
    – And then under “All Files” category, save the file as locker.bat and place the file into the folder of your choice.

    The text that needed to be copy can be found below: (Right click and choose “Save Link As“)

    Simple as that :D

    Updated: what exactly you need to do after creating the locker.bat file…

    Note: you need to place the locker.bat into a folder first. What happens after that will be explained next.

    – First you double click the locker.bat file, and then a folder named “private” will appear
    – Place whatever file of your desire into that particular folder
    – After that double again click the locker.bat file
    – A command prompt window will appear and it will ask “do you want to lock the folder y/n?”
    – And then you type “y” and poof the folder will vanished :D
    – In order to make the private folder re-appear again, double click again the locker.bat file
    – Then a command prompt will appear again and will ask to enter the password

    That’s about it :D

    Hey guys!
    I got something great lah…

    1) Can you name a folder with ‘con’ ?

    I don’t think so… Hahaha :D

  15. shahmirazin says:

    The other thing is…
    I can name a folder with ‘blank’, can you?

    Here’s the trick

    1) Make new folder anywhere
    2) Right click on it
    3) Choose rename
    4) Press Alt+ 2,5,5
    6) Press enter.

    That’s all

    # Note that this trick will not happen if you press the 2 and 5 in the horizontal number lane. You must press it in the Numpad. And make sure the the numlock light is on.

    I will post here if i have more interesting tips, Insya-Allah…

  17. folder locking softwares are more reliable than these techniques,data protected by these techniques can easily be hacked but data protected by Folder Lock can never be hacked or cracked.

    Its a good software, and i being a blogger for 5 years want to share another information with you guys. Recently there is a software called desksense. Google “Desksense” and you will get it. This software is creating a huge appeal in the internet marketing world. 1. Its beta version is free. 2. It has file lock and folder lock. 3. Usb, CD, DVD lock and even website block integrated to it. Hope this info helps.
