Error Causes:
There are certain major errors that arise when you choose to take actions on any file. If you have opened a data file through any compatible application then it cannot be deleted unless it is closed. A software executable file cannot be deleted if its installation is under progress. Similarly, any attempt to delete a software component folder will generate error message if another application depends on that resource too. When transferring a file from one location to another, the access may be denied because you are not authorized to move that file or the destination and source folders have a few limitations applied.

Modest Interface:
Despite its simple and compact user interface, Unlocker is packed with all the necessary features. Upon running the software, a browsing window opens up. Through this window you can easily locate the file that you need to move, remove or rename. The application looks for locking handles and if no such restrictions are found then it proceeds to the next step. You will be asked to choose the action that you wish to perform on selected object. On selecting Rename option, you will be prompted for a new object name, while move option asks for destination folder. After that it efficiently performs chosen action.
