There are plenty of software which locks drives and folder to protect your confidential data. Why waste money on such tools when you can do it with a simple registry tweak? Here’s how: Caution: Before you attempt these tweaks, please make sure that you have a backup of your registry, just incase something goes wrong in the middle. Locking Folders:
1.Consider you want to lock a folder named XXXX in your E:\, whose path is E:\XXXX.
2.Now open the Notepad and type the following ren xxxx xxxx.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D} Where xxxx is your folder name.
3.Save the text file as loc.bat in the same drive. Open another new notepad text file and type the following ren xxxx.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D} xxxx Save the text file as key.bat in the same drive.
4.Steps to lock the folder: To lock the xxxx folder, simply click the loc.bat and it will transform into control panel icon which is inaccessible.
