Version 1.0 for Portable version of IObit Unlocker has been released by PortableApps.com and is available for download from its website. Its true that IObit is not offering portable for their Unlocking tool, however PortableApps.com with the permission of IObit made IObit Unlocker Portable, which lets you carry it wherever you go with you and lets you connect your USB drive and use the tool from any system to delete files/folders using by other programs or processes.

When compared to installer version, portable version doesn’t offers “IObit Unlocker” command  on context menu of selected files/folders.

What happened to Unlocker? no Updates since April 2011

Popular Unlocker tool that existed from older days doesn’t seem to have updated since version 1.9.1 that released on April 2011. We found Unlocker not only useful in deleting files that can’t be deleted but we also used it in the past on XP to get rid of error we encounter sometimes while unplugging the USB flash drive- “The device ‘Generic volume’ cannot be stopped right now .Try  stopping the device again  later”.

I tried to use the non-portable version of this program to delete the ‘old.windows’ folder that is sorted on the local disk after upgrading from Window 7 to Windows 8 — it didn’t work. (unlocker didn’t work either).

Ultimately I managed to get rid of it using disk cleaner tool after having scoured the internet for a solution.

Though these tools are for that purpose you shouldn’t manually delete Windows.folder,you should safely delete through disk cleaner as you’ve already done, we’ve covered that also if you’re interested you can check the below link.
