  1. damn :( you just don't have a clue of what i am saying right? :((((((
  2. We know what your saying, but we need more then 15min to reply.

    If you used a program to lock the folder, you'll need to use the same program to unlock. I'm not familiar with "lock a folder" so I can't tell you what to do. Do they have a help forum?
  3. http://code.google.com/p/lock-a-folder/ well that's a link... i don't know if it can be called help forum but there is a section where you can post your problems... i found many posts where they have problems similar to mine but there is not any solve :((((( crap... i was collecting my files for 7 years and now i can't see tham :( :(
  4. i wonder if changing windows will help me :/ :/ :/ :/
  5. I suggest you contact the people who made the program which locked your files.

    If its password protected, there are certain things you can do to get around it, but that's not to be spoke of here ;)

    (a hint?)
  6. i think one idiot made this program... i posted their site above :// even site is pitiful :/ i wish someone knew the hint :((
    if there is something just tell me :/
  7. did you set a master password?
  8. yes i can enter in program with master password...
  9. Redoing windows won't/shouldn't help. If it was that easy to get around what the program does it's not a good program. I would actually say it might make the problem worse if the code is stored in your current windows build somewhere. Remove windows and it might be lost forever.

    I assume you've seen this thread? Are you using the newest version/3.9.1?

    Edit: Seeing as you need to use a "master password", any chance its just doing something simple like XOR encryption? I know there are XOR "hackers" out there...

    Is there any chance you can remember the master password?

    okey then i won't do that :/ i don't know what kind of encryption is it but anyway tell me where can i find those hackers please :(

    @silverliquicity

    i know my password... it is a program bug

    Windows change wont help.

    What is it, password protected?

    Is it on the system drive?
  13. The program says its open source to modify, if you cant find a solution in time, i can have a look at the how it was written. I might be able to tell you what kind of encryption it is and or any loop holes if you lucky.

    no it is on D drive... i mean it is supposed to be... i can't see it anymore but using cmd when i tried to use takeown coomand it said it was denied to access :/
  15. SHA1 Checksum e065e42871e582659a831e0b6ae78c84d63d8450

    Any hackers out there? please respond lol

    Did u move the D:\ to another PC or its still the same one?
  17. and someone told me to change windows with linux... will this work?
  18. I think its all about the ownership rights.
  19. it is for sure.. you are right but problem is that i can't see my folder... i can't change it owner or whatever it is :(
  20. o my god :O hey the folder itself is not physically visible!!!
  21. What about removing the HDD, and puttting into an external caddy. Attach to a non-Windows PC, linux and see if you can access the files?

    It should not work, as it is a program that supposed to secure the folder or the drive.

    That would be a total fail : )
  23. than what the hell should i do? :( :( :(
  24. From looking at the hash error "silverliquicity" posted, it looks like SHA1 is the type of encryption. Google SHA1.
  25. Guna have a look at the source for loopholes or something seeing as it seems to be a dodgy bit of software, il post if i find anything that might help poor old jetro
  26. Yup, from what I can make out its not the best software for locking files. Looks like the decryption bit has gone wrong, as Jetro has access to the software and has the correct password.

    i agree, the bit that is supposed to decrypt isn't doing its job, attempting to re-write is an option... anyone want to have a go at that?
  28. Also if that part of the HDD is encrypted, then that will cause other issues if the drive is going to be formated at any point in the future.
  29. Im no expert with Programing code, wish I was now. Will take a look when I get a few spare mins.
  30. Like the partition of the drive?
  31. Yes, I would think attempting a format would just fail. SHA1 stands for Secure Hash Algorithm 1. There maybe software that can DeCrypt SHA1.
  32. hey guys you make me think you are my saviors ... i will wait just as much as you guys want to figure solution out :(( it will be like destroying a part of my life :(( because i am writer and photographer and all my work is in the folder :( :( :(
  33. Best answer
    Tried a data recovery company? A mate of mine runs one here in the UK and they have all sorts of crazy programs/machines they can use to extract data. It might be worth speaking to one or two different companies to see if they can have ago. I know quite a few of them work alongside the police and are used to busting encryption software to extract evidence.
  34. Hi Jetro, search Google for SHA1 Encryption and Decryption.
  35. Good suggestion Goldengoose. It may cost you some money to get this fixed Jetro, but it'll be worth it if you need your valuable data.
  36. Not sure if that can help, but maybe loading a Linux Live CD you can read and copy your data ?

    For example this one http://knoppix.net/
  37. yea it will work but in my country here is not companies like that :((( then i have to go somewhere where they can do it :((( i will do that if noone is able to help me :((
  38. I see, that could be difficult then.
  39. a downside, we cant post any actual programs which will crack SHA1 encryption as that's against forum rules
  40. tell me name please :( :(
  41. Message it to him - should be avoiding any issues with forum rules that way.
  42. yeah i did so... hey you will tell me there right?
  43. Jetro, Google SHA1 DeCryption. This might help.
  44. We can't suggest any software specifically.
  45. I can only imagen we are thinking of the same program to help jetro
  46. heeey guys :D i solved it... used wondershare data recovery... i mean i am using it now and everything goes fine :))) thanks to all of you and Goldengoose thanks to her i found this prog.
