  1. Is there a way to unlock files w/o another program?


    Photoshop keeps generating undeletable debug.log's (only solution is rebooting which is not ideal) and many of the programs recommended do not seem to work on the latest Win10 build.

    Surely there's a way to do this natively?

    Unlocker programs

    It's always great to have multiple tools in your toolkit, hence why it is a toolkit.

    I prefer to use UnlockIT because it has a more advanced GUI that allows me to view all the .dll's and process hooks in the locked files.

    It also has more features that can be seen here: Feature List - UnLock IT
    The best of the best in my opinion, however, I would have both in my toolkit in the event UnlockIT cannot do the job for some strange reason (which it has not given any problems).

    unlock hard drive


    I just installed w10 and I love it!!!!!!!!!!!! I have a dell laptop with a ssd and it works fine. the problem is my second harddrive which is connected a usb and it has all my data on it, except it is locked and cannot edit a file and save the file. We will call that #2, #1 works fine, I can edit and save, #2 I can view but no edit and save. I use photoshop and when I go to save it states that the file is locked. #2 is partitioned into 3 drives and all drives act the same. everything worked on win 7 in the same configuration.
    So with my whiz bang mentality I say the drive is locked. But I do not know how to unlock it !!! can anybody help me!!!
    I am a old senior teckky and things have to be laid out step by step. Is there a program I can download to unlock the HD,??? or do I have to do it the old fashion way, step by step

    TIA
