Folder Lock was working nicely with my password. Now it stopped working with the same password and it gives me an "Incorrect Password" message. How can I solve this problem?

Well if it gives message of "Incorrect Password", then you must be entering wrong password. I am quite sure about it, re-check what are you entering in password field.

Have any question, write me here again

If the password is not working anymore, go to Control Panel > Appearance > Folder Options, click the View tab, check the Show hidden files, folder, and drives box and click OK:

After that, delete the win_mpwd_sys.dat file from

  • C: > ProgramData;
  • C: > Users > Vortex > AppData > Local;
  • C: > Windows in windows X86;
  • C: > Windows > SysWOW64 in Windows X64.

Once you delete file, run the program and enter a new password.
