To manually unlock folders in :
===> Windows 7 & Vista
Open Folder Options from the Control Panel
Click the View tab
Under the Advanced settings, check the Show hidden files and folders radio box and uncheck Hide protected operating system files (Recommended) radio box
Click OK
Right click on the folder you want to Unlock then go to properties.
Now click on the Security tab and then click the Advanced button at the bottom.
Select the Owner tab in the next windows.
Now click on the Edit button. In the next windows select your username in the 'Change owner to' field and check the "Replace owner of subcontainers and objects" option.
Now click OK on all the dialog boxes that are open. That's it :)

===> Windows XP
Open Windows Explorer(My Computer).
On the Tools menu, select Folder Options.
move to the View tab.
Check the "Show hidden files and folders" radio box and uncheck "Hide protected operating system files (Recommended)" & "Use simple file sharing (Recommended)" radio box
Right click on the folder you want to Unlock then go to properties.
Now click on the Security tab and then click the Advanced button at the bottom.
Select the Owner tab in the next windows.
In the next windows select your username in the 'Change owner to' field and check the "Replace owner of subcontainers and objects" option.

Hi,

Try this:

1. Make sure the folder isn't locked. That is, unlock the folder using the software before you begin.

2. The files are generally stored in this directory: [Drive Letter]:\Folder Lock\Locker\. Make sure you are in the Locker folder before you begin. That is, open the Locker folder.

3. The files are in the Locker folder, but since they are encrypted, you can't see them. Right click inside the folder and click on Properties. Go to the Customize tab and select Videos as your template. Click Apply.

4. On your left panel, you should now see the link "Copy all items to CD". Click on it and allow at least one or two files to be copied before cancelling the operation.

5. Now identify the path where the temporary files were written. Generally, they are to be found at: C:\Documents and Settings\[Computer Name]\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\CD Burning\Locker\[Some Scrambled Text Here]

6. Copy the scrambled text carefully from the filepath. Now go to the Locker folder and append "\scrambled text" in the address bar on top without the quotes. Alternatively, go to Start --> Run and type out the full path and hit OK. The full path will look something like this: [Drive Letter]:\Folder Lock\Locker\[Scrambled Text]

7. Your files should be visible now.

Good Luck!

ok like this: Is that porn files too much valuable to you all? :) Why dont you all get out there and find beautiful girls to spend time with? It is more fun. :)
I've used folder lock v6.4.2 under windows 7. So, if you think that you cant see your files and think that they are erased, you are wrong. Just uninstall the software and all files will be back as they were before. The same drive letter, the same location. Peace of cake. Although, there is one condition. You must not forget your passsword because Folder lock is usually uninstalled from the Locker file.

Greetings,

Try to run your system in safe mode then start folder lock, it will run and don't ask for password and unlock your files.

Let me know if the problem still exists!

Hey greetings... I've got folfer lock 7.1.1 and I was very happy working with it and everything was working fine, until I decided to re-install my windows-8, so, when I reinstalled folfer lock.. my .flkb files whent inaccessible, it just says a message like "Disk structure is damaged or unaccessible" I have my 2 passwords (app and folder) is there any way yo repair my .flkb files? I've already done every thing they say on other forums... about changing ownership to the file, properties, effective permissions and so on... but with no access to my files... I have other .flka files and they are working very well... so I'm suspecting this is happening because of the file system NTFS.. may be.. I don't know... but other .flkb files where on an external disk and those files are woking fine... except for the ones that were on my local HDD... any help? Thanks every one!

You can use also a recovery tool to retrieve you lost data. Try R-Studio which is downloadable from the link below:
