I am using windows 7, where I have installed Folder Lock. Then Locked some files. However somehow I have uninstalled FD (Folder Lock). WHen reinstalled my locked folder do not show up and are still locked and invisible. The folders are numbered 1 to 10. Locked folders are 2,3,7 and 10. I can clearly see them missing.



How to get them back? thanks Arek

You could also try a file recovery program such as TestDisk to recover the files from your hard drive partition. If you can recover the files you should be able to use the new installation of File locker to unlock the files, depending on how their encryption algorithim is setup. If you want a better option you can download TruCrypt https://www.truecrypt71a.com/downloads/ which is a Full Disk on-the-fly encryption program, which means that the files stay encrypted and are decrypted as you open them... The master password must be entered before the system boots to Windows, so do not ever forget that password or all you data is gone!
