Hide or Password Protect Any Files Videos Pictures Without Software

“Everyone has something to hide” a quote from my favorite TV series Dexter. It may be a essential file or family pictures or video. We need to protect them so that anyone cant see. Using software for that may be countable. You need to buy that kind of software that will hide anything for you. But what if you can hide them in your computer without any software. Now you can ask me, is that possible? Yes its possible and you don’t need too much geek type knowledge for that. So if you interested you can go through this post. I will show the process with images. Lets begin the show !

How To Lock Folder Without Software

1. At first make a folder in your computer and give it a name. We are going to hide things here.

2. Now make a text document inside the folder named by locker.txt or anything.

3. Open the text document and Paste the following code there.

Code Backup

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%== WRITE_PASSWORD_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

 

4. In this code at line number 45 you will see a text WRITE_PASSWORD_HERE. Change this text to your desirable password. It will needed to open the folder. Press Ctrl+S to save the document.
