Folder Security Software (Password Protection) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Does anyone know of any software that will allow me to password protect (lock and unlock) my files and folders and is windows 7 compatible. Basically something that will allow me to right-click in a folder, click "new", then select a folder with password protection, or something that will allow me to right-click on a folder and add a password to it.

  • Your all files will be saved system hidden folder which is created by the folder locker software.

    But techie guys can easily find.

    You can use Attrib command to hide your files.

    For example your folder stored in E:\ and named as Microsoft.

    open the command prompt

    Start > Run (Win key + R)

    type cmd

    type E: and hit Enter

    type attrib +s +h +a File Location (attrib +s +h +a microsoft) and hit Enter.

    Your file will be hidden. If you want to unhide the folder, use

    type attrib -s -h -a File Location (attrib -s -h -a microsoft)

    Your file cannot be unhide without this command. But you can view the file by following steps.

    Tools > Folder options > View

    Enable "Show hidden files, folders and drives"

    Disable "Hide protected operating system files"

    Mark as Answer if it's worked. Thanks. Balamurugan_Subramaniyan
