Folder Lock: Unable to see locked folder

I have downloaded folder lock 5.2.0.6 and had locked a folder.
But the problem being that the locked item is not displayed in the locked folders list.
it still shows the same amount of space occupied in that hard disk partition but the folder is not displayed in it.
The folder is not there in the locked folders list so i cannot unlock the folder but that space is still occupied and i need to unlock and use the data in that folder badly. Please Please help.

Please don't panic! I have not used Folder Lock but I can still suggest you something. First of all make sure -
  1. The default path to locked folders (if there's such thing) is the one you are aware of.
  2. Check the settings of the software, you might find something there.
I can't offer much help right now. I will have to download the software. Can you tell me the URL from where you downloaded the software?

exactly the reason why i havnt yet re installed the software with the fear of losing data
but i tried backing up that drive and in the progress the files were getting displayed and that folder which is not visible also got backed up.....now wat do u suggest....

but preferably i would like it to appear without getting to all this backing up an stuff....

After reading above replies, I've decided not to download the software 😕. Do you know the names of files/folders? Try installing Google desktop search and try searching for the files using it.

If you are using Windows Vista, then you might just try the search option. That's the only solution which comes to my mind 😒

Hello
I manage a little comptershop like my hobby and yesterday was the second time that a client came to get help on this programm (Folder Lock). The first time was easy, we just formated the disk and backed up again because the files were easily avaiable.
Now the second occation the problem was more serios (the Locker folder emty), the client had important financial information in excel that he couldn't get again.
The solucion was easy: I used a programm named "Recover my files" (easy to use) searching the "Locker" folder (takes some time) and copying the files to the desktop.
That's all, for to have the copy-option you need to have a registred programm I guess. You can get about 100 diferent file extentions recovered.
I think for my own that the best option to have files a little save on the way with moveable disks is to zip them with a password, don't try those programms like Folder Lock when you have serios informations that you want to get hidden.
I hope it wasn't too late to get you this information.
Best wishes from Ecuador.
