How to use Winrar as Folder Lock ?

Getting a good folder lock for free is really a tough job. I myself had searched a lot for these folder lock software but i didn’t find any good one that is really worth using. Then i made up my mind to check out on torrent and i got premium folder lock software there. Though i got paid software for free but i got too many viruses with them so i removed everything from my system to clean it. At last i ended up with a very good method to use Winrar as a folder lock. So i am discussing that method in this article.

6. Then click on “Set password” button.
7. OK now you will get the following window. Check “Encrypt file names” for better security & enter the password and then click “OK” and again “OK” button.
