    Ages ago, before moving home, i downloaded a trail version of a file locking program called FolderLock.Then after moving , and getting connected online agian, I have completely forgotten my password.

    The problem is, I cant access my files which are stored in Folder Lock as I need the password.

    I vcant even delete the program because I need the password for that too.

    I dont know what to do.

    Please help someone

    If there was an easy way around that, it wouldn't do much good to have it to begin with.

    I think we're almost border line to not being able to assist here, as we have no way of knowing your intentions.

    The only help I can see is the one referenced in the message above. If you've registered this program, you can get the key from them.

    yeah kitch, thats the one.

    I know, its great that its so secure, I just wish I hadn't forgotten te password.

    Te problem is that i was using the trial version so it's not registered.

    and like you say AceCandy, its hard for me to prove my intentions. so maybe im gonna be stuck on this one.

    I'm afraid you are stuck as this one is about as secure as they come

    no doubt there are password cracking tools that might work BUT if I remember correctly teh encryption standard of folder lock is so high that it is an unlikely event

    Ok, I think I'll go ahead and lock this one up (no pun intended) before some Einstein comes along with some cracking advice...........
