Locked Files RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have been using SyncToy 2.1 to Sync files between my home computer and a network drive as a sort of backup for these files.  The reason for this is so my kids can save their files to the network drive and they then get backed up on the home computer by SyncToy.

    This worked great for some time but recently the external network drive failed :-( and now the files that I have bene backing up are all locked!  An example of the new filename is as 'locked-2005_1231Sweden0001.JPG.pmdp'.  This was originally a JPG photo and the word 'locked-' has been added to the beginning along with weird four letter extensions (in this case pmdp but they are all different).

    Can anyone suggest how I retrieve the original files?
