EMCO UnLock IT is a neat free utility that helps you to take control of any file or folder when it is locked by some application or system. For every locked resource, you get a list of locking processes and can unlock it by terminating those processes. EMCO UnLock IT offers Windows Explorer integration that allows unlocking files and folders by one click in the context menu.

You can't change, move or delete a file because Windows says that it is used by another application? This is a typical situation when it's hard to decide what to do without additional assistance. Windows only suggests closing all applications that may be using the file, but it's not clear what specific applications are meant. Often, a computer reboot is the only way out in such a situation, but, in some cases, even a reboot cannot resolve the problem. What to do in this case? Is there any effective method of handling locked files and folders without a reboot?

EMCO UnLock IT was created to reveal the magic of file and folder locking. First of all, for every locked resource, it enables you to see a list of processes that control it. Having detailed information about the processes, you can identify respective applications and close them down in a natural way by following all required procedures, such as saving opened files, etc. Alternatively, you can force termination of the locking processes directly from UnLock IT to unlock the resource immediately. This approach can be helpful when you remove any viruses or spyware that grabbed control of your files.
