Use IObit Unlocker If You Are Unable To Delete A Locked, Currently Used File

by Rohit Khurana on September 7, 2011


Sometimes you are not able to delete, copy, move or rename some files or folders in your system as the files are locked and Windows would not allow you to do so. Now I have got a solution to your problem, an application named IObit Unlocker. The software can also be used to unlock a USB drive when you are not able to eject it. The application is very simple and easy to use just drag and drop the files or folders that  you are not able to unlock and the the application will just provide a simple option to unlock the files and then the required action can be performed on those files. In case a file can’t be deleted it will give you an option to delete the file at reboot.

As soon as you will install the software, whenever you will right click on a file or folder you will get an option to open that specific file or folder with IO bit Unlocker.

This is the window that will open when you will run the software for the first time after downloading and installing it. You can directly drag and drop any file or folder to it to unlock. The files and folders can be unlocked using the Unlock button. The unlock button also has four options Unlock and Delete, Unlock and Rename, Unlock and Move and Unlock and Copy depending upon the task that you want to do with that particular file or folder. If you are not able to perform the selected operation by clicking on the Unlock option then you can try the forced mode that is available. Forced mode terminates all the process related to that particular file or folder that are currently running in your windows. To use the Forced Mode just check the check box that says Forced Mode.

The Technical Support option can be used to get support regarding the application.
