Guys we can just right click on the .bat file and click on edit to see the password. I don't think it is safe

if i delete my lock folder by locking in this way is this available in my drive?

Copy link

I'm trying to unlock by clicking the .bat, but it won't open the control panel. what do I do?

Copy link

Can this private folder be created separately for every drive?

Copy link

Does not do much, the files still show up when searched for which is not what i wanted.
I previously had a similar solutions that completely wipes the folder once it is locked then recreates it when given the right password, the files are missing if you try to search for them while they are locked away.
The problem is that i reset my laptop, ....

What is this code for? The folder is only hided. It is not secured or encrypted. Using this code seems to work in windows environments but I give you a hint. Mount the drive or stick in linux and you see what happened with the files - nothing in the aspect of security.
