I want to delete a .flkb file, which was created through Folder Lock 7 software. This requires a password which I have forgotten. Now this file taking 20 GB space of my drive.

    What do you mean deleting the file requires a password? What happens when you just navigate to that file in your favorite file manager for your favorite OS, and give a "delete" command?

I faced the same problem with Folder Lock once. You have two options:

  • If you uninstall your Folder Lock then you will be able to delete that file.
  • Or alternatively you can download Unlocker.

After you install Unlocker just right-click on that .flkb file and click on Unlocker and then from action select delete and you're done.

Hope this helps.

    Did you have the same problem with Folder Lock files? Quickly scanning their website, they claim "Windows kernel level locking and filter driver makes it possible to lock files and folders in Windows Safe Mode", which makes me wonder if Unlocker can actually achieve anything there.
