  • Problem mit Folder Lock

    Hallo,
    ich habe das Programm Folder Lock hier heruntergeladen:
    freesoft-board.to/f32/folder-l…seln-portable-272780.html

    Die Installation auf meiner ext. FP war recht einfach. Nach der Eingabe eines frei wählbaren Passwortes konnte man Dateien einfach in den Ordner von Folder Lock ziehen. Leider habe ich blödsinnigerweise gleich einen ganzen Ordner hinein geschoben / ausgeschnitten. Testweise habe ich dann auf lock geklickt und dort auf very fast.
    Anschließend habe ich das Programm geschlossen und wieder geöffnet. Nach EIngabe des PW's öffnete sich wieder der Ordner "Locker" Leider befinden sich dort keine Dateien :(
    Wenn ich bei der ext. FP auf EIgenschaften gehe, ist das Volumen immer noch genauso groß, d.h. die Dateien sind noch irgendwo vorhanden. Im Papierkorb sind sie nicht.
    Ich habe dieses Forum gefunden, da geht es um Folder Lock:
    Folder lock problem, how to unlock? - Digit Forum

    Ich kann zwar recht gut englisch, ich verstehe aber die Tips in der EIngabeaufforderung nicht :(

    Habt Ihr eine Idee, wie ich an die Dateien komme?
    Grüße und Danke

    Nach einer email von Folder Lock habe ich das Problem gelöst :)

  • Hallo,
    hier ist die Antwort von Folder Lock bzgl. des Problems:
    For a solution to this problem, 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.

    If the Windows do not allow you to delete this file then load your computer in Safe Mode or in Dos Mode (this can be done by loading your computer with the help of a bootable disk, floppy or a bootable CD) and then delete the file called 'windrvNT.sys' from your Windows system folder, which is Windows\System or Windows\System32.

    One way of loading your computer in safe mode is to press F8 before the Windows Logo appears when starting up Windows. This option you will also see when your computer is half awake, saying "Press F8 for more options."

    Once you've deleted this file, boot the computer again by restarting normally and you can use the computer without any problem with all your files recovered. At this moment, if you have double folders in Folder Lock, called Locker and Locked, you can delete one safe that is empty. But do make sure that it is empty by right clicking and clicking properties to know whether it contains any amount of files, folders or takes any space. If it is empty, delete the one you don't want. Similarly, if you previous had files locked in several places but do not show up in the unlock folders option with browse locking, then they will be recovered too.

    Once you done with this, install Folder Lock again, install the fresh copy from Folder Lock - Free Software Download - Lock Folders, Drives, USB disks & Encrypt file or upgrade to latest version and install it again. This new version solves all those previous bugs.

    There are several methods of recovering your files. Given below are the methods which can help you recover your lost files.

    1. Please note that this sometimes happens when you have Folder Lock installed in more than two locations of your hard disks. Which is why sometimes the icon on your desktop (or startmenu) for Folder Lock, may not be of the same location where you have your files locked. This is the reason why sometimes, the Locker is empty on another location. To remedy this possible problem, what you can do is, go to the same path of Folder Lock which you've installed on a location where you believe your locker folder should be in, and then run the Folder Lock.exe from that path, enter correct password and retrive your files.

    2. If the above method doesn't help. Can you try this, 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" then run Folder Lock and enter correct password, you must now see a scrambled folder, in which you will be able to see your files.

    3. If this didn't work either, then try uninstalling Folder Lock and install Folder Lock again using the setup file again in the same folder. By doing this, all your program files will be overwritten. This will not damage or remove your locked or encrypted or scrambled files so don't worry. This will only replace program files. If for some reason you are unable to uninstall, then simply install the new setup file over the old one. It is recommended highly that you download the latest version from our site Folder Lock - Free Software Download - Lock Folders, Drives, USB disks & Encrypt file or click upgrade on this page if you are our past customer.

    4. If you have this problem in Vista, try running the program Folder Lock.exe as an administrator. Right click the Folder Lock.exe file and then click run as administrator in the context menu.

    If this doesn't work, try to follow the given instructions:

    If nothing is working well while recovering your files then you can use our recovery program, download it from newsoftwares.net/folderlock/recover.zip Please unzip it and copy the recover.exe in the program folder of Folder Lock if you are using Windows XP/2000/Me/NT/9x. But if you are using Windows Vista, copy this file in the My Documents folder. Once that is done, simply run the program, if you are using Windows Vista, make sure that you run as administrator (right click recover.exe and select run as administrator) and then enter user id and password if asked, and then click the uninstall button to first uninstall the program before recovering files. Once the program is uninstalled this way, reboot your computer.

    It is important that you restart (reboot) your computer to proceed. After this, start your computer again, go to the same program folder of Folder Lock and then run recover.exe from there again. In case of Vista, go to My Documents and run the recover.exe from there. They enter your user id and password again, and then click "Recovery My Files" button.

    After this process, all your missing files will be found in the folder called "Locker" in the program folder of folder Lock. Or in My Documents\Locker if you are using Windows Vista. Browse it, it contains all your missing files. For Windows Vista however, we strongly recommend you to right click the recover.exe file and choose "Run as administrator" option for assured recovery.

    Please note that since you've uninstall Folder Lock, now you can install it back and keep your files protected. If you own a full version, then go to our upgrade page from Folder Lock homepage to get the full version again. Or if you are a trial user then go to Folder Lock - Free Software Download - Lock Folders, Drives, USB disks & Encrypt file to get your trial version agian. Once you download it, install the software in the same program folder of Folder Lock, where you installed it before.

    If you do not have purchased a full version of the software, then this recovery software would not work. It requires a User ID and Password, which we only send to our registered users, to avoid security related problems and to understand that the missing files are your own, not someone else's.

    Another method for recovering files in Folder Lock, whether locked in the locker folder or via browse, is to use a special file recovery software. It is called "PC Inspector File Recovery". It is a freeware and simple program. To download this software, click download.pcinspector.de/pci_filerecovery.exe or go to pcinspector.de/download.htm#file_recovery and then download it. Then install and run the software, click the drive button on the top and then browse the Folder Lock directory i.e by default C:\Program Files\Folder Lock or if you used browse option to lock, then search for your lost folders that you wish to see on this program.

    If you've locked files in the locker folder then browse the directory Program Files\Folder Lock or where you installed Folder Lock (whether on a USB drive or hard drive etc.) when you'll browse this directory using this file recovery tool, you'll see a folder called n¦+¦-n or folders called Locked, Encrypted or Scrambled. These folders may contain n¦+¦-n folder, this is where your locked files are. Click this folder to view its content and then copy/paste these files to another location on your hard disk.

    If this doesn't help, then see the deleted section in the recovery software, and browse the same folder from there, and you will surely find your files in the deleted section if you used Encrypt or Scramble options.

    If you have two operating systems installed, like Windows 98 and Windows XP then you can boot your computer in Windows 98 and install PC Inspector File Recovery software in that system and then recover the files in the Folder Lock location. If you do not have two operating systems and the recovery software can't work on Windows XP, then please go to Google and search for "file recovery software" and download another file recovery software to recover your files.
