    Locked Folder


    Hi Everyone. Glad to be here. I have a bit of an issue. I had a folder on my computer that was locked by right clicking and using the encrypt setting but I could still access everything in it. I did a windows update last night and now everything in the folder will not open, says "was denied" has a lock in top right corner. I have checked all my permissions and everything looks good. Any suggestions?

    :)

  2. Folder locked and dissapeared after unlock

    Well here's something i found on this:

    http://en.kioskea.net/forum/affich-475786-lost-my-files-in-folder-lock

    But it doesn't work here , i don't have that folder.

    Can somebody help me searching for a solution , tnx.

    EDIT:

    I did that and that's when the folder just disappeared but the data is still there, the program is very confusing about restoring files , it says that "files should become unlocked automatically" ... so where the heck are manual unlocking instructions.

    It's not an encrypt , it's just a password lock , so data is all open. The problem is, i would get like 225 GB of individual files off the HDD recovery , i just want the harder way of accessing the folder but getting the folder structure , where can i find the time to SORT 220 GB of data omg.
