Now you can see that you have a folder to put your documents inside and 2 batch files, the file ‘Loc.bat’ will be used when you want to encrypt the folder and turn it to control panel shortcut, the other batch file ‘Key.bat’ will be like a key to decrypt the folder back to normal.

These two files should be kept some where “safe” like in a USB stick or probably somewhere deep in your hard drive. I hope this helps, feel free to ask any questions in comments.
