    I must be doing it wrong. I tried it out and got the MS-DOS Batch file for both the lock and key but it wouldn’t lock the folder though. The files inside the folder were still able to be viewed.

    So to lock to a folder, lets say the name is jyt, you type in

    ren jyt
    jyt.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D} and save it as lock.bat

    and to unlock it you type in

    ren jyt.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}
    jyt and save it as key.bat

    is that how you type it in

    Sincerely
