Hi, what software did you use to lock that folder ?

Do you have any restore points on your computer made before your brother removed the software ? To check it you need to click start - all programs - accessories - System Tools -
System Restore and Select: Restore my Computer to an earlier time and click next.
If there are restore points they are marked with bold font on calendar.

According to Instant lock website:

"- What if someone uninstalls the software ?

No way! Only you can uninstall Instant Lock with your password.

- What if someone deletes the program folder manually?

No problem, deleting program's folders will not result with data loss neither. Just reinstall it with same password. Installation location does not mater at all. You do not have to remember that. "

So did your brother completely uninstall it with password or just deleted the folder of the program?

google a program called TreeSize free, its a freeware. Instant lock doesnt really lock files, it just stores them in the volume information folder and TreeSize can be used to know which folder and then use can use it to open it and cut and past the folders out. You'll know which folder its in easily since every other folder wont contain anything.
