Keeping your computer’s hard drive clutter-free is a good goal. It frees up space and lets your computer run more smoothly. The good news is that there are plenty of tools available to accomplish this.
The bad news is that sometimes files will be locked or inaccessible and they need to go. You might get errors when trying to move or delete a file. Windows could say that the file is locked or in use. Sometimes this is a bug in the system and there isn’t anything you can do to correct it.
That’s where Unlocker comes in handy. It lets you override Windows locking errors. Once Unlocker is installed, simply right-click the offending file and select Unlocker.
The Unlocker program will launch and give you some options. You can choose to unlock the file, move it or delete it. It’s really that simple!
To install Unlocker, be very careful about which download button you click. There are many ads on the site that mimic the Unlocker download button. This software is completely free, so if you are prompted to pay for a service, you have clicked the wrong button.
To begin your Unlocker download, click the large green “Download Latest Version” button on the very top right of your screen directly underneath the blue header. Your installation will begin immediately.
