Remove locked files and unlock them with the help of LockHunter, a simple but powerful application that will help you access your locked files and remove them with ease.
If you have some locked files on your computer, then it might be for a few different reasons. It might be because another user has decided to lock them, or it is because you have locked them and you don’t need them anymore.
In any case, you can use LockHunter to either unlock them or delete them from your computer altogether. It’s a simple and lightweight application that has more than enough in its locker to help you unlock these files.
If you want, you can also delete them from your computer altogether. You can do that in a couple of steps.
Working with LockHunter is extremely easy. All you need to do is right-click on the selected file or files and perform the actions you want to do with this tool. You will be able to automatically scan items and see if they’re locked or not, giving you a good idea of whether you’ll need to take any actions with this tool or not.
When you have selected or found a file that you would want to unlock, you can unlock it with just a few clicks. Again, you’d have to right-click onto the file and click unlock to perform the action.
Or, you can also opt to delete it from your computer if it’s of no use to you, especially if you might think the file might be harmful.
There is also additional functionality with the command line tool, where you’ll be able to enter commands and perform the actions with this app that you can’t otherwise in the main interface.
It will allow you to terminate processes all at the same time or again, select the ones that you want to delete.
LockHunter is a foolproof file unlocker that will help you when it comes to deleting any unwanted file you can’t remove manually.
