Should be an easy fix.

re-create the batch file by copying the following and pasting it into that folder you created.

cls
@ECHO OFF
title Folder Private
if EXIST "HTG Locker" goto UNLOCK
if NOT EXIST Private goto MDLOCKER
:CONFIRM
echo Are you sure you want to lock the folder(Y/N)
set/p "cho=>"
if %cho%==Y goto LOCK
if %cho%==y goto LOCK
if %cho%==n goto END
if %cho%==N goto END
echo Invalid choice.
goto CONFIRM
:LOCK
ren Private "HTG Locker"
attrib +h +s "HTG Locker"
echo Folder locked
goto End
:UNLOCK
echo Enter password to unlock folder
set/p "pass=>"
if NOT %pass%== test1 goto FAIL
attrib -h -s "HTG Locker"
ren "HTG Locker" Private
echo Folder Unlocked successfully
goto End
:FAIL
echo Invalid password
goto end
:MDLOCKER
md Private
echo Private created successfully
goto End
:End

NOTE that I bolded the one change to make use of the test1 password you say you used. You could have just as easily gained access by typing PASSWORD_GOES_HERE since you did not EDIT the batch file as the instructions stated to perform the following after copying their script into notepad:


The next step is to change the PASSWORD_GOES_HERE<i><b> text to whatever
you'd like your password to be. Don't use an easy-to-guess password.

Now we need to save the text document.</b></i>
