I did back up my data, some of them were locked by folder lock. I only blocked all the folders, right click,copy, and paste into different hard disc. then I reinstalled the computer.
surprisingly when I copy back all the folders into the computers, I only see the folders, most of files can not be found.

can anyone explain? how to solve this?
sorry that I dont really know type of folder lock used.

I think you're going to have trouble resolving this problem if you don't know anything about this "folder lock" software.

You can look at it this way if you ran the folder lock before doing the backup then the folders are locked and therefore you are not going to be able to copy any of the information that is inside of the folders. Locking the folders stops access into the folders except if the lock is taken off and then you could have copied the folder contents.

This is a security thing and apparently it works rather well, you're not getting the information is proof of that.

Here is the web site for folder lock

From what I have read on this site this program should not be used until you read all of the information about it and how to use it.
