How to Create Password Protected Folders in Windows 7

Sometimes we don't want to give access or to show our data to any other user of the same device. For this purpose windows 7 users use hide function or software's to make their files password protected. But now I'm going to share a trick based on simple script and steps by which you can create hidden locked folders.

Steps To Create Password Locked Folder

1. First of all go to your desired drive (d, e, f, etc.) and, create a new folder with whatever name.
2. Now open a new notepad (with in newly created folder) and paste the following code in it.
title Folder Techij
if EXIST "Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}" goto UNLOCK
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.
ren Techij "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%== Password FAIL
attrib -h -s "Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}"
ren "Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}" Techij
echo Folder Unlocked successfully
goto End
echo Invalid password
goto end
md Techij
echo Techij created successfully
goto End
3. Replace Password with the desired password for example 2by24 and then, save the notepad as .bat;  Check below screenshot as an example:

4. Once you done open folder (in my case it is Stuff) and do double click on a.bat file. Upon double clicked a new folder will open as Techij. Place your personal documents, images, etc. in Techij and then double click a.bat again and press Y and hit enter to hide techij file. To access your files open a.bat file and enter password.
