Folder Locking using Dos in windows!

Got stuff in a folder of yours which is hidden behind another 20 folders so that your dad would go crazy trying to find it? Sick of guys cooly walking up to your system at school and deleting your Blue J project and then going "Hehehe....i just gagged some cookoo's project of the comp! God is he gonna cry his head off!"....Heres a solution which is FOOL PROOF!

The process goes like this:
1.Click Start

2.Select 'Run'

3.Type in "command" and hit Enter.

4. DOS would now be glaring at your face. Select drive of your folder.
eg. If ur folder is in d: then type d: and hit enter

5.Type this:

ren (space) (space) (hold alt) (leave alt)

6. Done? Good... after this hold alt again and put in some three digits(like the digits of your telephon no. or some easy to recall stuff). Just make sure you dont forget the numerical code!

7. Hit Enter. Type "Exit". Back to windows.

8. Go to where your folder was and try opening it(the folder would now be labelled with some underscores or dashes!). You will see an error which denies access to your file, bans deletion and basically does not let any idiot lay a finger on your folder. Cool eh?

alright done with lockin' it....what do you do to access your own folder?

Sorry man i dont know! hehe....just kidding!

1.Go to Dos


ren (hold alt) (enter combination entered earlier) (leave alt) (space)

Go to windows and voila! folder all accessible again...YO!
Didn't get any particular part of this stuff? Leave a comment below.
