When your trial version expires (without notice), your locked files/folders remain locked and can only be unlocked by buying the full version. And when you go to the publisher`s website: a) there is no purchase price listed until AFTER you authorize the purchase; and b) there is no way to contact the company until AFTER you have purchased the full version. BEWARE!
Here is a simple way to unlock the files locked by "instant lock
1. Open the program Winrar
2. Using Winrar, go to the drive where you have locked your folder(s). Suppose it is F:
3. reach to F:\Volume Information\ •0d¡. There would be two folders with the same name •0d¡. Choose the second one, containing your folder(s).
4. After reaching to your locked folder(s) using Winrar, you can take them out from there by picking any locked folder/file and dropping it to any suitable location outside, such as desktop.
Your files are now unlocked. Thanks to Winrar.
BEWARE!!! Like many have said before THIS IS SCAMWARE!!!! My files got locked after the trial run out and I had to buy the program to unlock them. I got in touch with Plimus who deal with all of Instant Lock`s payments (through my credit card company) and Instant Lock via Plimus gave me a 10 cent credit and Bullsh*t about all questions being answered in the FAQs - which they aren`t. I then got back in touch with Plimus and got my money fully refund. If you have been scammed get in touch with Plimus too... Pretty soon Plimus will realise what SCAM mongers this lot are!!!!
Recovering the files from Instant Lock is trivial. (The following
experience was based on XP but I don`t expect it to be very different
on Vista.)

The files are not really encrypted (or "protected" for that matter).
They are simply moved to a hidden folder on the same disk. For
example, on the D: drive of an XP machine, a folder originally named
D:\001 is simply moved to D:\Volume Information\ •0d¡

Note your particular path name will vary, and also note the path name
contains funny characters. (The "Volume Information" folder is a
hidden folder so you need to turn on the Windows Explorer "Tools ->
folder options -> view -> hidden folders and files" to see this

The "Volume Information" folder also contains a lot of other gargabe.
A quick way to tell whether the "Volume Information" folder is of
interest is to look at its size by right-clicking it and looking at
its property. An easy of way of listing the full content of the
"Volume Information" folder is to use the Unix-like utilities from
Cygwin. Install Cygwin. (Google for "cygwin".) Pop up a DOS window.
cd into D:\"Volume Information". type "c:\cygwin\bin\ls -lR|more".
Keep hitting the space bar to see more. This will perform a full
recursive listing of the entire directory content. From this
directory listing, you can tell whether your stuff is in there and
then simply use Windows Explorer to copy or move the actual data back
to a normal place.

On a personal note, I`m posting this because I`m disgusted by the
slimy tactics of the makers of this crappy software. They deceptively
use a "free download" slogan to entice people to use it, and once they
have hidden away users` data and the "trial period" has expired, they
hijack your data for ransom. Let`s not even mention the fact that the
simple moving and renaming of a "protected folder" offers zero
protection---all the so-called "protected" files can be easily
discovered and recovered by the simplest browsers. The dumbest user
can accomplish the same by simply cutting and pasting the files into
the "Volume Information" folder (or any other place) by hand!
