Editors' review

Move, rename, or delete locked files at your next system boot with this effective and easy-to-use freeware utility. EMCO MoveOnBoot's no frills interface has a combination of a drag-and-drop window and text buttons. It won't win any design awards, but it makes the app simple to operate. Help is included, but even inexperienced users will have this program mastered in minutes.

It can't get much easier to work with the locked files. You merely drag the problem file to the interface and the app displays a prompt dialog. Radio buttons list each of the program's options. Click the action you need performed, and press OK. MoveOnBoot will delete, move, or rename files or folders. The app also offers an easy method to bypass the prompt dialog. If you need to perform the same action on multiple files, you can simply call up a drag-and-drop window for that action and drop all your files there. All it takes to perform the actions is to boot your system.

The interface helpfully lists all actions to be performed on next boot and includes a log of previously performed actions. ECMO MoveOnBoot simplifies a function experienced users find difficult, and it does it in a way that even novices will understand. This is freeware everyone will need at some point, and it's a good addition to any user's toolbox.

    "Worked as intended."

    Version: EMCO MoveOnBoot 2.3.3

    Pros

    Works
    Easy interface
    No bloatware

    Cons

    None that I encountered

    Summary

    I've been trying to delete a folder from one of my storage drives for a few weeks now using all the different methods Windows has built in such as taking ownership of the folder, changing permissions, deleting the folder through CMD prompt etc and they all failed. Downloaded this program and I was able to instantly understand the interface and after restart the folder was finally gone!

    If you have a folder that windows cannot find the path or no longer exists but is still there, still locked, use this program.
