      Hello avj, sorry on delay to answer you but I’m fixing some false positive virus warning on this site.

      About your comment, there’s nothing I can do. The folder it’s locked and encrypted so anyone can’t retrieve it’s contents if the password is forgeted.

      Please make sure that you’ve entered your password correctly, and pay attention to the CAPS Lock key or a SHIFT key accidentally holded.

      TIP: You can try a lot of password variations as many time as you can because Protect Folder will not block repeated attempts to unlock a folder.

      And please remember:

    Today I have installed Protect Folder Software & also I have protected one of my important folder but when i am trying to unlock the folder its showing WRONG PASSWORD. I remember that the password is correct. Kindly help me to unlock the folder.

      Hi, the folder you protected is encrypted and there’s nothing we can do to unlock it.

      You can, however, try as many password combinations as you want, because Protect Folder will not stop you for trying.

      Please try it with CAPS lock ON and then OFF, first capital letter and the rest lower case, the opposite, and so on…

      Some users reported being locked outside their folders already, and this is not a bug in Protect Folder because it was tested several times to avoid this.

      I again, advice EVERYONE to test Protect Folder in test dummy folders BEFORE protect sensitive stuff.

      Sorry if this wasn’t the answer you were looking for.

    What is the difference between the free and the full license version of “Folder Protect” ?
    Is there a maximum: for example only 3.5 GB can be protected?

    Dear Gromicho,
    You wrote: “Some users reported being locked outside their folders already”. Is it not possible to give the possibility to fill out one’s email address, so that if one has forgotten the pass word, one can have it sent by email? That would be the finishing touch!

    Update: Consider it done! There is a new version of Protect Folder available, you can now protect folders with any file size and many new features were introduced as the ability to recover lost passwords. Click here to get latest version.
