How to Make Invisible Password Protected Folder Submitted by Srikanth on...


How to Make Invisible Password Protected Folder2761870.jpg Submitted by Srikanth on Thursday, 10 December 200930 Comments Do you want to password protect your folder? Do you want to make it invisible so that it remains unnoticed by the normal users? Well here is a way to do that. In this post I will show you how to make a password protected folder in Windows without using any additional software. Here is is step by step procedure to create a password protected folder.

How to create a Password Protected Folder
Step-1: Create a new folder (Right-click -> New -> Folder) and give it any name of your choice. For instance I name it as ABC.
Step-2: Now in this folder place all the important files, documents or any folders that you want to password protect.
Step-3: Now Right-click on this folder (ABC) and select the option Send To -> Compressed (zipped) Folder.
Step-4: Now a new compressed zipped folder gets created next this folder (ABC) with the same name.
Step-5: Double-click on this compressed zipped folder and you should see your original folder (ABC) here.
Step-6: Now goto the File menu and select the option Add a password.
ie: File -> Add a password
Now a small window will pop up and here you can set your desired password. Once the password is set, the folder will ask for the password every time it is opened. Thus you have now created the password protected folder.

How to make it Invisible
Step-1: Now Right-click on this password protected folder and select Properties.
Step-2: At the bottom select the option Hidden and press OK. Now your folder gets invisible (hidden).
Step-3: In order to unhide this folder go to My Computer – >Tools -> Folder options. Switch to View tab, scroll down and under Hidden files and folders you’ll see the following two options
  • Do not show hidden files and folders
  • Show hidden files and folders
Now select the second option and press OK. Now the invisible folder becomes visible in it’s location. To access it you need the password. To make it invisible again repeat step -1 through step-3 and select the first option and click OK. Now the folder becomes invisible once again.
I hope you like this post. Pass your comments!! Cheers

Password protection


This tip will explain exactly how to password protect a folder. For this purpose i will use WINRAR. It is a very user friendly application, and it gets the job done!!!. You can also compress folders to save up some space, so it is very handy indeed. Best of all, you can download it FREE OF CHARGE...HERE.

After you have downloaded and installed winrar, we can start. Here is what you should do.

Step 1:

Go to the file or folder you wish to password protect, right click on the folder, and choose to "Add to archive".

Step 2:

Go to the "advanced" tab, and choose to set password. Enter your password. Click OK to proceed.

Step 3:

Step 4:

Now you will note that if you want to open the file or folder which is protected, you will be asked to enter your password. Just enter the password, and you will be allowed to use the contents.

If at any point you have forgotten the password of your folder, you will be able to recover the password by having a look at my recovery tip HERE.

I really hope that you can find this tip helpful. Please rate accordingly.

How do I set the password for an individual folder; i.e., F1 I want to password proctect the folder as well as rename the folder.


http://www.addictivetips.com/windows-tips/how-to-lock-and-password-protect-folder-in-vista/

  • 1 Select the individual folder that you would like to password protect. If you will be protecting multiple folders, it is easiest to place all of these folders into one larger folder and simply add a password to that master folder.

    However, it is also possible to add passwords to folders at multiple levels within the folder arrangement. This is an excellent way to allow certain users access to some documents by giving them the password for the higher level files while making the master passwords for the interior folders available only to those who have access.

  • 2 Highlight the designated folder, and left click on it to open the drop-down menu. Select the "Folder Information" option, and open the Folder Information menu. This will give you access to the various preferences that are adjustable for each folder, such as color, icon and name.
  • 3 Click on "Password Protect," which may be on the main menu or on a "Settings" or "Security" tab. Apply a level of password protection that fits your needs. Set a password for the folder that will be easily remembered. Click "Apply" in the bottom right corner to make the changes permanent.

    Password Protect Folders in XP


    There are two ways to password protect a folder built into Windows XP (for other Windows flavors, there are some freeware/shareware programs out there).
    Method 1:- If you have a log in password for your account, this can be used to protect folders from other users. Your hard drive must be formatted using NTFS (which it probably is unless you're dual booting with another operating system). Here's what to do...

    Right-click the folder that you want to make private and choose "Properties" (or Alt+Double-click). Go to the "Sharing" tab and check the "Make this folder private" box.

    Click Apply . If you do not have a password on your account, a box will pop up asking if you want to assign a password. This must be done if you want to make the folder private, so click Yes . You will need to use your password to log on to your computer from then on.

    Type in a password then confirm it. Click the "Create Password" button then close the Password window.

    Click OK in the Properties dialog box.

    Now anyone else logged on to your computer can't access that file without knowing your password.
    Method 2:- If the Folder is Zipped you can give it a unique password.

    Just double-click the zipped folder. In the top menu select File then click "Add a Password".


    Type a password into the Password box. Then again in the "Confirm Password" box.

    Now, you are the only person who can access files in this folder. The folder can be opened allowing the files to be seen, but you are the only one who can access them.

    First, make sure you have a password when you login to your computer.

    Right click the folder you want to protect.
    Click "Properties"
    Click "Sharing" tab
    Place a check mark on the box that says "Make this folder private"

    The password will then be asked eveytime somebody tries to access your private folder.

    Tip

    Create a password protected folder without any special software


    In an earlier post I had written about how to create an invisible folder. That’s a method to create a merely invisible folder with no real protection.
    Now, here we will see how to create a folder that will not just be invisible, but also require a password to reveal it and open it. The best part is that you don’t need any special software to do this. Just plain old Notepad is all that you need.
    Here is the code that you need:
    cls
    @ECHO OFF
    title Folder Personal
    if EXIST “Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}” goto UNLOCK
    if NOT EXIST Personal goto MDLOCKER
    :CONFIRM
    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
    :LOCK
    ren Personal “Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}”
    attrib +h +s “Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}”
    echo Folder locked
    goto End
    :UNLOCK
    echo Enter password to Unlock folder
    set/p “pass=>”
    if NOT %pass%==pwd123 HERE goto FAIL
    attrib -h -s “Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}”
    ren “Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}” Personal
    echo Folder Unlocked successfully
    goto End
    :FAIL
    echo Invalid password
    goto end
    :MDLOCKER
    md Personal
    echo Personal created successfully
    goto End
    :End
    Now here is what you need to do:
    Just copy the above code and paste it into Notepad. Save it by giving it any name you choose. Assuming, the file is called secret.txt, change the extension to ‘.bat‘ so that the new name becomes secret.bat. What you get is a batch file. You could actually save one step by saving the file in Notepad directly as secret.bat by enclosing the file name like this: “secret.bat” . This batch file is the one that you need. You can edit this batch file to change the folder name and the password. To change the name of the folder that is created, change the ‘Personal’ (in bold in the above code) to any another name you choose. Likewise change the ‘pwd123′ (in red in the code) to anything else.
    Now let’s see how to use it. Place the file in the location where you would like to create your protected folder. Run the batch file by double clicking on it. This will create a folder named Personal in the same location as the batch file. You can now open this folder and place any files in it. Once you are finished, run the batch file again. You will be asked whether you want to lock the folder. Entry ‘Y’ (for Yes) and hit Enter. The folder becomes invisible. To retrieve the folder, run the batch file again. You will be prompted to enter the password. Enter the password, hit enter and voila! the folder appears.
    Important: The batch file acts like a key to open the locked folder. So once you have created and locked a folder, do not keep the batch file in the same location since anybody can open the batch file and view your password. So I would suggest that you keep the batch file in a separate and safe place or better still keep it on your pen drive or flash drive. That way when you want to open the folder just copy the batch file to the location where you have your protected folder and run it.
    Do remember that the above method is not intended to act as a substitute for the numerous free and commercial softwares that are specifically designed to provide security and encryption to your data.
    Update: I got comments saying the code does not work. Of course I did check it before posting it here. But I have identified the problem. The problem is with the straight double quotes used in the code in this post. Once you copy the code you would also need to change each of the double quotes with your keyboard double quotes. That might seem a lot of work for some. So I thought it would be easier to give away the batch file itself. You can download the file here. (Use right-click and ‘Save Target as’ or ‘Save Link as’).
