How to lock a folder in professional manner (without using the encrypt

I want to lock (or completely hide without allowing to see with show hidden folder check) a folder with C# for windows platforms. This should be work for both FAT and NTFS file systems. I do not wont to use encryption since it is slow.

Should I use low level c++ code to achieve this?
Also I need this as a robust solution so changing CLSIDs is not working.

Also removing permission with FileSystemAccessRule with AccessControlType.Deny also not working for me. Because that only work on NTFS and also if it is worked then user can right click the folder and remove deny AccessControlType.

Please help me to resolve this.

Thanks.
