You can recover All your folders and files .....

1- run registry by typing 'regedit' after clicking Start button in Windows and then click Run. Then delete this string value:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER > Software > FolderLock6 > LastLockerPath .

2- Goto Folder Options -> View -> Advanced Settting tab

Uncheck the option

- Hide protected operating system files (recommended)
- Show hidden files, folders ,and drivers .

Go to documents Folder ... and you can see folder have name (Locker )
open it ... and you will see all ur files at thir >>>

hey there,

you did wrong while you hard removed the files from the program files you should have removed it in the add or remove programs and after that juts try to reinstall it, it sould let you get the files that you are willing to get. but you should know that some encrypting programs have this disadvantage that is you can use it for some time and after the expiration period it will ask you to get the full version in other words to pay for it and if you dont do that then you wont be able to get back your data. but before coming to any conclusion just try to do what i have told you before and then see what happens.

Try this Guys ....
Go to My Computer on your desktop and then run it, and the click tools menu and then click "Folder Options..." Then click the "View" tab and then select "Show hidden files and folders" option and uncheck the "Hide protected operating system files" and then go to the System directory of your Windows which is typically C:\Windows\System32 or C:\Windows\System and search for a file "windrvNT.sys" in these folders. Then delete this file "windrvNT.sys" (this is Folder Lock locking driver file) and then restart your computer to get your folders/files or drives back.

Just try this which i had done & got succeed...Do not install this software again bcoz it was trial version so it has expired which will not work again.

1. Firstly ununstall the software & then restart the pc...Then find whether your hidden forlder is there or not.../
2. Or download the same software again ...It will work bcoz the it will count trial date fom current date.

I hope these solutions will solve our problem....If yes then let me know.

Nope, that won't work because there are hidden files in the registry that is retained and remembers the first download of the trial version. Believe me, I won't and doesn't work. Gotta purchase the product. Sorry.

If you have version 5.7.5 (may work with other versions as well) hit runn and type regedit, goto HKEY_CURRENT_USER/software/Folder Lock/logs
