Please check the lock, which you have applied. Is it Master Password, if so, then you might need to check the same. However, please find the links which will help you understand how to set this unlocking easy.

If the password is not working, you can use the Serial Number that you have used to register Folder Lock as the key to unlock the application. This feature needed to be enabled as the Master Key option in Password Security settings. Since Folder Lock has been designed to prevent data theft, if you did not set up that feature, you will not be able to perform main operations that the program offers.

Doubt any of these ideas will work as its software that's supposed to lock your files away. If you have lost you master password the only way I know of retrieving you files is to us a Linux live distro like Sabayon and use the file browser to find your locked files and just copy them to a usb stick. Sabayon will read NTFS/FAT32/ windows directories. Hope this helps

I think when losing or deleting files by accident, maybe you can get help from Android Data Recovery, which is specially designed for people to retrieve information including messages, contacts and SMS and more from HTC phone and other Android devices. With an elegant and friendly interface, you can manage the app with ease. It's compatible with various Android phones including but not limited to Samsung, HTC, LG, Sony, Motorola. Now go and start to get them back.
I remember the fundamental guide of how to recover deleted files on Android is:
Step 1. Run Android Data Recovery and connect your phone to computer
Step 2. Enable USB debugging
Step 3. Begin to analyzing and scan your phone
Step 4. Preview and restore text messages
Good luck to you! Any question you could contact me.
