How to Create Undeletable Folder in Windows XP

In previous article I wrote about creating folder locker which can hide and protect your files inside it with a password. Undeletable Folder
This time I thought to write about creating undeletable folders.

These folders can be deleted in Dos prompt only. So normal computer users will not be able to delete these folders.

To creating and deleting both processes we have to use DOS prompt which you can start by type CMD at "run"

Click Start >> Run and type CMD for start DOS prompt.

Change to the directory that you want to create your folder.

If you're not familiar with dos prompt simply you can create folders in any of your hard drive partition, for that just type hard+drive+letter: (Ex. C: , D: )

Then type "md \aux\\" without quotes marks and hit enter.

A folder called aux will be creating in your selected partition.

Try to delete in normal way, it will give you an error message whenever you try to delete it. There are many other names which you can use for creating folders.
  • lpt1 to lpt9 ( Ex. md \lpt1\\ )
  • CON
  • AUX
For delete these folders again open DOS prompt and navigate to the directory which you have create the folder

Type rd \aux\\ and press Enter. The folder should be deleted.
