How to Create a Password Protected Folder using a batch file.
CHOOSE YOUR PREFERRED LOCATION. You can bury this deep into a series of folders, if you wish to REALLY REALLY secure your files.
USB, EXTERNAL DRIVE, or even your DESKTOP can be used as a location.
Open an untitled NOTEPAD.
Shortcut to run notepad: Hold Windows Button and press the letter “R” on your keyboard then type in: “notepad”
On the UNTITLED NOTPAD, Copy and Paste this code: (FROM cls to :End)
cls @ECHO OFF title RVIRUSV1 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 contaminate current directory with rvirus_v1 set/p "pass=>" if NOT %pass%== defaultpassword101 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
CLICK: FILE > SAVE AS
FILENAME: Your preferred “VIRUS” name .bat (For this I named it “rvirus.bat“)
SAVE AS TYPE: Change this to ALL FILES.
Now you have a working batch file (concealed as a virus). Upon clicking the batch file for the first time, it will automatically create a private folder in the location you’ve chosen. Default password: “defaultpassword101”.
What’s next? Change your PASSWORD OR the LOCK/UNLOCK prompts. Here’s how:
Navigate to the batch file. Right click > EDIT. You need to have administrator access to do this.
A notepad will appear. You can go ahead and modify the settings.
- LOCK & HIDE PROMPT
= echo Are you sure you want to lock the folder(Y/N)
RELEASE & SHOW PROMPT
How to use it?
- Click the batch file. (RVIRUS / Whatever you named it)
- First time clicking it will automatically create the PRIVATE FOLDER.
- Save files on the PRIVATE FOLDER.
- If you want to close it click the BATCH FILE again.
- A “LOCK/HIDE” prompt will appear. Type “Y” to hide the folder or “N” to cancel.
Here’s an example:
It’s just a matter of locking and unlocking the folder by clicking the batch file.
