I would like to explain my situation. I have a folder named *** and I locked it using USB lock application.
My brother created a folder with the same name and locked it and then he deleted it.
After I came to try opening the first folder I get an error message saying: "This folder can only be accessed by its owner while because it is protected."

Please help me to recover 450 MB of data.
Thanks for you help.

Well, if you want to take an aggressive way then I suggest you use Unlocker. Install the application, then right click the folder and select the Unlocker option. The application will detect whether the folder is locked and it will provide additional operations among which you will also find the Unlock option that you will need to use. Then the USB Lock application will not have any rights to keep the folder locked and you will be able to copy the content from the folder.

DO RIGHT CLICK ON THE FOLDER LOCKED BY USB LOCK APPLICATION.
MOVE CURSOR TO THE "SEND TO" (COMPRESSED ZIPPED) FOLDER THE COPYING TO ZIPPED FOLDER WILL START AND THEN OPEN THE ZIPPED FOLDER CONTENTS

Have you tried some data recovery software? You can use the Google search tool in this regard. .My Mac Book Pro hard drive has crashed and I'm in the process of replacing it. However, I had a lot of important data on that hard drive that he needs recovered. Then I found uFlysoft data recovery software that recovers data from corrupt/bad hard drives. And fully supported for NTFS/FAT32 mac files.
