Secure a Private Folder and Hide it in Windows

Dear reader,

Today I found a link to:
1) Secure a folder using a password and hide it. It won't be visible in "Show Hidden files 
   and Folder" option in Folder settings.
2) Convert a folder as "Recycle Bin", "Internet Explorer" kind of icons and secure it
   using password so that no one can see the content.

This is quite simple, just using notepad. Tested in Windows environment.

These stuffs you might be knowing as these are hacking techniques, however I am pasting the 
link of these two stuffs.

This below one is written by my college batchmate, branchmate:

This below one, I got by googling:



  1. As the file is deleted frm
    i have quote the codes below, save the code in a notepad and named as "Folderhide.bat". when u will run the file first time, this will create a Locker folder in the same location.
    Next time onward just open Folderhide.bat file and put y to hide/unhide your secured "Locker" folder!!!

    title Folder Locker (
    if EXIST "Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}" goto UNLOCK
    if NOT EXIST Locker goto MDLOCKER
    echo Are you sure u 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 Locker "Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}"
    attrib +h +s "Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}"
    echo Folder locked
    goto End
    echo Enter password to Unlock folder
    set/p "pass=>"
    if NOT %pass%==type your password here goto FAIL
    attrib -h -s "Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}"
    ren "Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}" Locker
    echo Folder Unlocked successfully
    goto End
    echo Invalid password
    goto end
    md Locker
    echo Locker created successfully
    goto End

  2. Dear Angraj,
    Moving contents frequently from a site causes a problem while look-up and hence people/readers lose the interest in blog reading. So it is better to avoid that.
