Windows Hack 4

In this "window hack" post we are going to see that how can we make a folder hidden from our windows computer without using any software like "folder lock, etc"

All we need is just command prompt.
open your command prompt (start > run > cmd)

now go to the directory where your folder is placed which you want to lock.

Assume that i want to lock a folder whose path is C:\folders\LockThisFolder
i want to lock LockThisFolder in my windows computer.

now type these command in cmd

cd c:\folders

ren LockThisFolder "Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}"
attrib +h +s "Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}"

That is it... Your folder is locked. Now nobody can see this folder and nobody can retrieve it. All your data in LockThisFolder is now safe from any intruder.

Now if you want to see this folder again then type these commands in command prompt

cd C:\folders

attrib -h -s "Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}"

ren "Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}" LockThisFolder
