Lock any Folder , without any Software ..

If u wanna lock any folder of your's without any Folder Locking tool , then here is a simple solution.

Suppose you have a folder namedTEST, and you want to lock it.

Just follow the steps and see the result.

1. Open a notepad and copy paste the code ; “ren test test.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}”, without quotes.
2. Save this file as “loc.bat”.
3. Open notepad again and paste in the code ; “ren test.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D} test”, without quotes, and save this file as “key.bat”.
4. Just paste both these files where your folder is located. Run the LOC file and your folder will turn into Control Panel.
5. To unlock that you need to run the KEY file and everything will become back to normal.

This is very basic kind of locking but it is definitely cool ..
And remember , don't get yourself locked up by deleting the key files without unlocking the folder ..

Have a good locking time !!
