1) If you want to lock a folder named pocket in your C:\, whose path is C:\pocket

2) Now open the Notepad and type the following


ren pocket pocket.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}

3) Where dark is your folder name. Save the text file as loc.bat in the same drive.

4) Open another new notepad text file and type the following
