Windows 7: How to find find locker made invisible using Folder Protect ?

How to find find locker made invisible using Folder Protect ?

1.I had created a locker on my desktop using "Folder Lock" software.
2.Subsequently I made the locker invisible using "Folder Protect" software.
3.When I was trying to add more files to the locker created in 1 the locker tried to "increase it's size on the run"...
4.This process failed and "Folder Lock" shut down and since then I cannot locate the locker anymore on my PC nor can I see it in "Folder Protect"
5.Having read on a forum, I uninstalled "Folder Protect" and reinstalled...but that did not help..I still could not find the Locker.
6.I even uninstalled and reinstalled "Folder Lock"...even this did not help
7.I understand the lockers created by "Folder Lock" are UNDELETABLE.
8.Clearly my locker is somewhere on my hard disk but I am unable to locate it.


Is there any software which can help me locate it ?

Many thanks and God bless.

This is why you do not use third-party software when Windows already as the means to protect your files. Who knows what mayhem "Folder Lock" caused when it crashed. It probably corrupted your data thus it is now gone.
