Any reason why you didn't backup the drive before installing EASY DRIVE LOCK? Have you read this in a review? However, there might be a problem with the shared resources. While testing the program I learned that any locked partitions can be accessed, if you enter the full path of an item (file or folder) into Windows Explorer. So much for protection. A locked partition can be accessed either locally or by using a remote machine this way. Have you tried accessing the drives as \\system_name\d$, etc.?
