      It is possible.But Before you attempt these tweaks, please make sure that you have a backup of your registry, just incase something goes wrong in the middle.

      Locking Folders:
      Consider you want to lock a folder named XXXX in your E:\, whose path is E:\XXXX.
      Now open the Notepad and type the following code:

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

      Where xxxx is your folder name. Save the text file as loc.bat in the same drive.
      Open another new notepad text file and type the following code:
      ren xxxx xxxx.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}
      Save the text file as key.bat in the same drive.

      Steps to lock the folder:
      To lock the xxxx folder, simply click the loc.bat and it will transform into control panel icon which is inaccessible.
      To unlock the folder click the key.bat file. Thus the folder will be unlocked and the contents are accessible.
      Locking Drives:

      We don’t usually prefer to lock our drives, but sometimes it becomes nesscary. Say for instance you might have stored your office documents in D:\ and you don’t want your kids to access it, in such case this technique can be useful for you. Please don’t try this tweak with your root drive (usually C:\ is the root drive) since root drives are not intended to be locked because they are mandatory for the system and application programs.

      Start & Run and type Regedit to open Registry editor
      Browse HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curre ntVersion\Policies\Explorer
      Create a new DWORD value NoViewOnDrive and set its value as
      2^ (Alpha Number of Drive Letter-1) where Alpha number are simple counting of alphabets from A to Z as 1 - 26

      For example: to lock C:\, Alpha number of C is 3 so 2^ (3-1) = 4 (decimal value)

      To lock more drives, calculate the value of each drive and then set sum of those numbers as value
      To unlock your drive just delete the key from the registry.

          Lock Drive Without Any Software

          Step 1 : Goto "RUN" and type "gpedit.msc"

          Step 2 : A window will be opened (Group Policy).You will find two options in left side of the page.

          Step 3 : Drop down the "user configuration" and again drop down sub menu "Administrative Templetes" and again drop down another sub menu "Windows Components" and click on "Windows Explorer".

          Step 4 : Right click on "Prevent Access To Drives From My Computers" and then click on properties.

          Step 5 : Click on the radio button "Enabled" and you can select any option in the menu.

          Step 6 : Follow the same procedure for disabling it.
