Folder Lock Opens empty Locker - Should not be empty.

I have a home PC with two IDE Hard Disks on one of which I have my o/s and on the other I have my data. I also have an external Hard Disk which connects by USB.
My o/s was XP Home and I had folder lock running on the Data HDD and on the external HDD.

I followed the procedure on Folder Lock web site and made each of the Data folders as if the were usb flash type drives – as I say one is external anyway.

Yesterday I installed Windows 7 on my HDD which was XP home.
I formatted the HDD and installed windows 7 – my Data drive was not formatted and the external drive not touched.

When I went to run folder lock on my Data drive the first message was password not recognised access denied.
Next time I tried it I got prompted to enter my registration id number and password which I did and then prompted me to set a new password which I did and ‘locker’ opened but was empty. I tried setting the original password but still locker opened empty

When I look at the properties of locker I can see that it shows the number of files as 704 and 6.5 GB on disk. Therefore the files are still there I just can’t see or access them when locker opens.
On the external drive it started the same password procedure so I stopped in case I did something wrong

How do I get my files back?

I know there is data on my phr-250a mcally external hard drive but it's showing empty folder


Leave it connected to your computer and try a restart.
If the folder is still showing as empty, power down the computer then disconnect the external drive.
Power on the computer and connect the external hard drive to a different usb port.
I had this exact problem with a 1000 Gb external drive that was full of movies and music. I thought it had all been lost .. After 2-3 days and repeated attempts of restarts and power-downs/different usb ports it suddenly was recognised again and has worked perfectly since

I want to read the files of my old Hard drive?


ok you have a pc. now, plug the IDE connector to your old hard disk and plug the power connector also. Now, you have 2 hard disks. Your old hard disk must be plugged into the secondary IDE slot. Dont touch anything with your original hard disk. Just add your old hard disk to your PC through the secondary IDE slot and using IDE cable. When your Windows OS opens, you will see a new Hard Drive when you open My Computer. It could be Drive E, F or G

The Coolmax adapter is an USB hard drive adapter that can connect various types hard drives to your computer. This is used for testing and and transferring data to and from hard drives connected to the computer via the computer's USB port.

This Coolmax USB hard disk adapter can connect a 2.5-, 3.5- and 5.25-inch IDE or SATA hard disk to a PC. The black adapter box connects the hard disk, while the secondary power plug/adapter powers the drive. In the case of smaller notebook or SATA disks, the power cable is plugged directly into the adapter (as opposed to straight into the IDE hard disk).
The red USB cable, meanwhile, can be used to power hard disks directly from the host PC's bus via another USB port.

Connect the hard drive to the adapter as detailed above, power up your computer and plug the Coolmax USB cable into the conputer's USB port. The computer will detect and see this as an external drive, most likely as a E drive (the next drive letter that is available). Click on this drive and open to open the folder/s where your data is stored then select the folder/s and/or data and copy them, then open the hard drive on the computer and paste the folder/s and/or files onto the new hard drive.

Deleted Raw Folder


Probably you just deleted it into oblivion. On floppy disks in Windows, if you delete something, it's really gone - there's usually no trash can on a floppy disk. Probably it works the same on a CF card, which is also regarded as a kind of removable disk by Windows. Or was the file already on your hard disk?
