Problem with 'Folder Security' software

I installed Folder Security ver 1.0(Free Version) provided on DIGIT CD some time back, and it was working fine. This has been developed and provided by Mr Manoj Kumar A P, who has given his email address as and url as
When installed, this program shows up as Directory Security. This program helps in hiding folders and really does it well. On one occassion, when I had hidden some important folders on my 'D' drive,I forgot about them and did not unhide them before I reinstalled Windows XP(P) on my 'C' drive. Ever since then, these 'hidden' folders are visible as recycle bin icon, showing the correct attributes, but with their contents not accessible to me. Efforts to contact Manoj have failed as his addresses given are possibly no more valid. Can any one help me regain these important files as these pertain to my office work. I will be really thankful.


Coming back to life ..
Open a command prompt :
Start > Run > Cmd {Press Enter}

Navigate to the path where your "hidden" folder is there.
Now say the folder you want to restore is called "Personal" , type this command :

Ren Personal.{645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E} Personal

Press Enter

You folder should open now ..

Thanks a ton for your effort to help me out. Sadly I am a complete novice when handling command prompt/wordstar is concerned, hence I cannot proceed further. I will be extremely thankful if you could write down the furthe steps for me. The 'hidden' folders are on Drive D and show themselves as under, given in brackets:-


Coming back to life ..
echo Renaming files ..
echo Off
ren 2.{645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E} SecretFolder1
ren 3.{645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E} SecretFolder2
attrib -s -h -r SecretFolder1
attrib -s -h -r SecretFolder2
echo All Done .. Have a coffee and open your folders.

^^ Copy this in notepad and save in the the drive where those folders are located. Save the file as Unhide.bat . Now double click on Unhide.bat and your folders will be renamed and unhidden ..


Mad and Furious
