To Lock a folder in windows XP without any software

Make a Folder in C drive rename it as "abc" without quotes.
Now open Command Prompt from Start Menu.
Type "attrib +s +h  C:\\abc" without quotes and press enter.
This command will Make your folder invisble and it can not be seen even in hidden files and folders
To make it visible again type "attrib -s -h  C:\\abc"
You can lock any other folder also by changing the location C:\\abc to address of your folder.


folder name can be change n make folder any where

Sir  :adore1
as u said above : Make a Folder in C drive rename it as "abc" without quotes.
i think this sentence suggests that we should rename the folder abc & the quotes u showed for abc, should not present in the name of folder (u said it for those who will try to rename the folder with quotes or just follow the instructions as u mentioned without even thinking about it  :tabthr )  :frus
but i want to share that if anyone wants to rename the folder with quotes he can't because in windows this is not allowed...  
error : a file name cannot contain any characters / \\ * ? " : < > |

i am sharing this experience just for fun or debugging in ur sentence   :qui  :qui

i think u will going to laugh after reading this rply  ):(

It doesnot lock the folder just make it hidden and system
it's contents can be find using search and allowing system and hidden folders
i have a better solution, that i will post in a new thread
