Are you using the thirp party application Lock Folders?

The only problems you should encounter would be if you locked a system folder needed by the OS.
Other issues could be the prevention of installs, program loading/saving etc.

If it is a small folder then using this "dirlock" is ok..

But as always read the instructions on how it works and test it on a empty folder first.

dirLock description

dirLock is a simple but easy to use program that lets users lock/unlock any folder on a NTFS volume.

dirLock is designed for users who keep their computer turned on/logged in for others to use it. So using this app you'd be able to lock individual folders instead of just locking the whole computer.

It also has features to hide and encrypt any folder. Although encrypting a large folder is not recommended because it is a slow process.
