You can't do this. Folder Lock assigns custom IDs to folders and files based on which are recognized. If Windows crashed and installed Folder Lock again, those IDs are not being recognized anymore. This means that recovery is not possible and there is no way to decrypt them.

If Windows crashed, install a new version of Windows but don't format it, then use WinRAR and browse to the folder where the locked files are stored. Open the folder with WinRAR then drag all the content on another partition. Once finished, perform the formating again and install Windows normally.
