Heyy !! I was looking for such folder locks !! This code is good however faces the problem of bringing the "Locker" Folder Back !!

I tried this too however on a sample or empty folder !! And found out that no matter what option i choose between "1-4" I couldn't get my "Locker" Folder Back !!

So with trial and error methods and editing the original code, I found out this:

Edit that code and under the "unlock Section", there would be such few lines under it:

###########if not defined mypass (echo You need to set a password & goto option)

set/p "pass=Enter password to unlock folder>"
if not %pass%==%mypass% (echo Invalid password & goto unlock)##########

Remove these lines from there, save and close.. And then click on the "Locker.bat" file again !!

Your work would be done !! :)
