Whenever the folder or file is locked, this app is the solution

editor's review






Deletion of files and folders seems like a breeze. That happens when it actually works – you select the items to delete, send in the command, process starts and successfully ends. What about the times when you only receive an error that informs you of various reasons why the process cannot be run. As frustrating as it gets, retrying to delete the same selection only calls for another error and so on.

Unlocker Portable clears those exact dead-times out and provides multiple solutions. The sources of such errors reside in the fact that the selected files and folders for deletion are accessed by a specific application, trigger a sharing violation or they currently are in use. On any of these occasions, Unlocker Portable steps in and saves the day.

Just run the app and point to the particular file or folder to delete and let Unlocker Portable do the rest. If your selection is currently not locked in by any process, you get a particular message that tells you this and asks for the action you would like to perform. You can choose from `Delete`, `Rename` or `Move`. The same actions plus `Copy` are given to you when unleashing Unlocker Portable on a locked file or folder.

This time around, the program draws a list of the processes accessing your selection as well as solutions for this distinct situation. You can pick from `Kill Process`, `Unlock`, `Unlock All` or just `Quit`. The `Unlock` operation tries to close the handles of the process opened for the selection, unload the DLL and ends with actually killing the process in order to successfully delete the selected items. If this fails too, Unlocker Portable asks whether you would like to schedule a deletion during the next boot of the operating system.

Unlocker Portable can also help you delete the `index.dat` files from your system as well as files presenting damaged or invalid names. This application does wonders. Its interface is as simple as it gets but hides a truly huge potential. Apart from that, when it comes to forced deletion of anything on your computer, Unlocker Portable is an absolute genius.
