I came across a free software called Lock-it which is used to lock the folders and files in it. It simple makes the files invisible and doesn’t list in the folder list. I locked some files in my hard disk drive which were about 100 GB in size. The problem i ma facing is that it is not accepting the password. I am sure about the password but even after trying several times, it still says, password incorrect. Now, i desperately want to know the options i have to recover the files. Is there any way? Will the formatting the hard disk and trying to recover the files help? Thank you
Lock it application – forgotten password
I cannot seem to find the exact application you are referring to since there are so many programs of the same type. If your application says that your password is incorrect, it literally means the characters you are entering are not identical to the ones saved on the application. Since the privacy of the data is protected by a password, make sure you enter it correctly.
This means if the password you used to protect your files and folders contain an upper case letter, you should also enter the character in upper case. You should know which characters are in small letters and which are upper case letters. It is not enough to remember the exact password. You should also need to remember the proper casing of the letters.
Since I cannot locate the exact application you used, if you downloaded the program, try visiting its website and then contact support regarding how to recover your files if you lost the password.
